After completing the below steps, you and your veterinarian will be equipped with the knowledge you need to design and introduce the most effective plan possible:
STEP 1: ESTABLISH BASELINE EGG COUNTS.
> Your veterinarian should perform a Fecal Egg Count (FEC) to determine your horse's parasite status. This will establish whether your current program is working properly.
> FECs should be evaluated annually. Horses with a higher risk of parasite exposure should have more frequent FECs.
