Parasite Tip

Generally speaking, the tests used to determine whether a horse is currently parasitized have limitations, because parasites may not be shedding eggs. Therefore, negative fecal tests for parasites should not be interpreted to mean that there are not any larvae in the horse. Furthermore, damage inflicted by parasites may cause intestinal disturbances long after the parasites have been eliminated.
