    Tape worms will not show up in a fecal unless it's an odd segment. I'd assume she has them & treat as you've already planned.
    Good luck with your new girl. She's one of the lucky ones.

    I have a hard keeping TB. She's on free hay and sugar beet, chop and a senior mix 3x a day. Worm counts good and no tapeworm or underlying comditions and I still struggled to get weight on her.
    Then I started to add a tbspoon of brewers yeast to her feeds and she's looking much better x

    She looks much better. Some horses are just hard keepers. Bahia grass should be a good protein /fiber feed. I use the senior feeds on all thin horses that come to me, simply because they are easier to digest. Brewers yeast is a form of vit b . You could add some vit e and c to see if that helps, I just crush an adult dose onto the feed . You may also try psyllium, maybe she is sanded . You can add more of the corn or canola oil (my vets and there are studies it does not make that much diff corn over canola) I also use soy oil . Beet pulp can be found w/o molasses . But if you can only find it w/molasses, it is usually such a small amt I don't think it will make a big difference. Look at the label for the sugar content. You could also try some alfalfa pellets added to the mix .
