Fecal counts and Deworming
I do not know why but I have been thinking about this these last few days for some reason. I will try to make it brief as to why I am wondering about this.
My mini stallion has previously had ulcers and since then we have cleared this problem up and that is what lead me to the vet in the first place. I took him in because no matter what we did he would not gain an ounce of weight. The vet thought he had worms, which he did a fecal count and could not find even a single egg on it. He told me to slack off of my deworming program, which I did not heed his advice on this one, I still continue it as I did because deworming 2x a year seemed like going backwards on keeping up with any worms he may pick up.
I guess my thing is, if he has no eggs in his fecal egg count, are all of my horses the same way or will some of them still possibly have egg counts but probably low ones? I know if I was really curious I could have fecals done on each horse since I think they were like 8 dollars each, but it just has me thinking about it for some reason.
None of my 6 horses show any signs of worms nor do I think anyone has any sort of infestation or anything, It just has me thinking here lately about it for some reason.
You know how to make a miniature horse even smaller? Leave them in the dryer a little longer!
