Lungworm larvae screening

Interpretation of Lungworm Larvae Screening
The presence of lungworm larvae is consistent with infection. If larvae are not present then note that disease can precede patency or persist after patency. In adult cattle lungworm infections do not generally become patent. If lungworm is still suspected confirmation of exposure may be sought by examining for serum antibody. The presence of an eosinophilia coincident with clinical signs is suggestive of lungworm infection, but does not confirm it. Please note this test is not validated for pooled samples.
