FREE Clostridium difficile screening

Posted on 24-06-2015

The Irish Equine Centre has initiated a project on determining the incidence of C. difficile in horses, to ascertain the numbers that are toxigenic and what ribotypes are present. These findings will then be compared with data from humans.
We are asking veterinary surgeons to submit faecal samples from equines that have enteritis.
This analysis will be free of charge.
