Spring/Fall Fecal Egg Count Reminder:
As we approach spring, it's time to start thinking about the importance of a parasite control program. Routine Fecal Egg Countsare a vital part of a well managed de-worming program. Fecals should be collected an appropriate amount of time after the last de-wormer has been administered. This period of time varies with the de-wormer used. Please see the table below to determine the appropriate time to take a sample.
There are many de-wormers out there with many different main ingredients. Here is a table that groups the brand names of common de-wormers by their main ingredient.
