Well, this learning curve just seems to get longer and longer! I did fecals today by myself for the first time. I have a couple questions, but in my usual long-winded nature, will give a little background... 2 days ago, I took fecals on my boys to the vet. Their numbers (3 weeks after the last clean fecal) were back up a bit. They've been on treatment for 2 days now. I fecaled the one who had the most as my control. I fecaled the girls. Their numbers looked minimal. The boy I fecaled had slightly more than the girls, but nothing like what I saw in the vet's office. I'm wondering how much I would see his numbers go down after 2 days of treatment (Corid)?? If I should expect a significant decrease, then we're probably good. If that decrease isn't to be expected yet, then something is probably wrong with my technique. I'm going to link photos of what I did see. The first one, I would like your opinion--is this something, or debris? Strongyle? The next one I am thinking is cocci. Again, your input here would be very helpful. All photos taken are at 400x, but my camera stinks! http://i424.photobucket.com/albums/pp324/stoneyheightsfarm/IMAG0002.jpg http://i424.photobucket.com/albums/pp324/stoneyheightsfarm/IMAG0004.jpg Many thanks!
