Fecal Egg Count Testing for Grazing Animals

 

Unfortunately the world of small grazers is presenting us with a snapshot into the future of what parasite control could be for our equine partners. It’s not pretty. Similar parasites plague our goats, sheep and alpaca and luckily the same Fecal Egg Count test for counting worm burden applies. Count your eggs friends!

The number one health problem affecting small grazing animals is internal parasites.  Increased resistance to anthlemintics (anti-parasite drugs) has created an immediate demand for integrated parasite management.

The Eggzamin Kit – provides everything necessary to conduct your own McMaster-style Fecal Egg Counts. This quick test helps you identify the type of parasites and level of infection. With customized equipment for conducting Fecal Egg Counts.  We are here to help you get started.

Fecal Egg Counts: What Do They Tell Us?

Working in conjunction with American Consortium for Small Ruminant Parasite Control (ASCRPC) to bring fecal testing to small ruminant owners and breeders, we graciously link to their site for the latest in:
