Having worked as a qualified SQP (Animal Health advisor) for Equines and companion animals for over 10 years, I found that friends were coming to me more and more for advice regarding worming and more specifically the use of worm counts – the when, why and how-to questions being asked all the time.
As a lifelong horse owner, rider & competitor with a passion and background in working with horses, then as a sales representative for an Equine Supplement company before I moved over to animal health, I started up EFECS a year ago after becoming continually dismayed by the lack of understanding and advice available to the horse owner where the use of worm counts are concerned.
After working for a large well-known Mail Order Animal Health company, and being qualified to perform Faecal Worm Egg Counts, my career took me on a very different path for a few years but at the back of my mind I knew that I would always come back to the thing that gives me the greatest job satisfaction and job fulfilment.
Here we are a year on from launching EFECS a company based upon the principles of having the health and welfare of the Equine at its heart along with great customer service backed up by a wealth of knowledge and passion.
Everyone that purchases a worm count from us is entered onto our database with a free reminder system when the next worm count (or wormer) is due.
EFECS – a nationwide postal worm count service based in Essex. With an aim to simplify the worming process, designing strategic worming plans incorporating the use of worm egg counts, for the one-horse owner, to studs and large livery and competition yards.
We are also pleased to announce this year that not only are we continuing with our sponsorship to ‘Kizzy Smith Eventing’ but have also added another young and upcoming local event rider to the Efecs stable of sponsorship.
Rosie Bates based in Chelmsford, is very much an up and coming young local event rider. Currently aiming her own horse BMD Douglas at 1* this year having already qualified and competed at Badminton Grassroots with Dot2Dot111 as well as competing for Essex Union PC in the prince Philip Cup at HOYS. Rosie is a regular instructor for the Essex Farmers PC and runs her own clinics, encouraging people to achieve the dreams they never thought they would.
It is with great excitement we all look forward to the coming year
