Small strongyles?

I wormed my new filly Nov 2/11 (6 days ago), the past few days I am finding small bloodworms in her stool, is this the normal time frame for dead ones to start appearing in her stool? She was thin when she came here and this is my first time worming her, she also came with summer sores but the wormer I used treats both, she is 7 months and I was told she had been treated @ 4 and 6 months, though her condition is a bit rough right now she is eating well and her stool looks good besides the seemingly dead worms. How worried should I be? I am keeping a good eye on her and I am going to get her stool tested next week then treat again if need be in a few weeks but I don't think besides the obvious there is much else I can do. I have never had to deal with these worms so basically I am just looking for a good follow up procedure with them, and to know I am taking the right steps.

I'd have her fecal tested and then follow the vet's advice on what to use.

My gelding, Sarge, got infested with those, even though he was routinely wormed. When I got Biscuit he was pretty wormy - I had him tubed and kept him separate but Sarge went down hill...his coat was rough, dull, dry and he lost weight and muscle mass.

I had him tube wormed 3 times with literally no success. Success came from using Panacur Power Pack 3 weeks after the last tube worming. I called and spoke with a vet at Panacur and they were very helpful.

Hope your filly gets better soon....those worms can really drag them down.

She seems fine, just a bit thin that's all, and Roger on the first response, also after the worming this was the first time I noticed them.

Actually I m sorry I just seen some good pictures of bot fly eggs and that looks more like the culprit, what a relief!!! But I will still have her stool tested.
