**Sheep Scab Blood Test**

A new blood test is available which detects the presence of animals’ antibodies to Sheep Scab. These antibodies are picked up before sheep start to show any clinical signs of itching or wool-loss. An ideal test to use when buying in replacements or to monitor treatment and for early detection of disease before it becomes a major problem. Costs around £8.75 per sample (plus VAT) and it is recommended that a representative number of samples are taken e.g. 6 in a flock of 200. Please enquire for further information.
