Faecal egg count reduction tests (FECRT) inform you about the drench resistance status of the parasite population on a specific property. This helps ensure the drenches in use are highly effective.
We have had an outstanding uptake of our FECRT testing but sometimes don’t receive all the information we require to generate the report. To make sure we receive all the information required for this new report, there are new submission forms available to use for this testing – links below.
In order to compile this report, both larval cultures and FECs for all control, pre-drench and post-drench samples must be performed at one of our Gribbles Veterinary laboratories. This ensures we have all the data needed to calculate the susceptibility.
