New England Horse labs, an equine testing facility, is located in Worcester, Massachusetts. New England Horse Labs was founded in 1975 under the original name of DVMLabs in Warwick, RI. Over the next 30-plus years, DVMlabs went through a series of name changes while continuously servicing the veterinary community throughout New England. Now under new ownership and management New England Horse Labs has a brand new, state of the art equine specialty lab. With a wealth of experience in histology, veterinary and clinical services, New England Horse Labs is available to serve all equine veterinarians and stables throughout the United States.

New England Horse Labs now offers two types of equine fecal parasite testing

fecal kitDue to multiple requests from our clients, New England Horse Labs now offers both qualitative and quantitative reporting for fecal parasitic egg burden. In our experience, the qualitative (modified Wisconsin) analysis is more precise for finding and identifying eggs in low-burdened animals, thus, reducing the number of false-negatives while the quantitative (McMaster’s) analysis is valuable for establishing a baseline and for monitoring any patient on a de-worming program.

Qualitative reports will identify any parasite found within the sample and estimate the density as: "light", "moderate" or "heavy".

Quantitative reports will identify any parasite found within the sample and give you actual counts: "120 Stronglye eggs per gram"
