Some worms, such as small strongyles, do not shed out in manure, so therefore will not be detected in a fecal test. But every worm that DOES shed out in manure, it will test accurately for.
So, they're accurate for what they are designed for, but they aren't 100% accurate for ALL worms. Just like dewormers.
Well, I tube worm the beginning of every year to every one of my horses to try and rule out any parasites. I've done all I can do as far as worming and parasite-prevention goes. Any more I just might get called crazy! I think it's just like with anyone else on here, you can't prevent everything, but you can take measures to do your best at it and that is what I've done with her.

Her teeth were checked as I had a thought, too, that her weight issue may be to blame for this. But again they're fine. And I've wanted to feed Jr. Glo from ADM for sooo long! My show goats were on ADM feeds and just blossomed, and the nutrition in the feeds they sell are great. Thanks for bringing this up, as I had almost let this brand of feed slip my mind.
