IS YOUR DEWORMING PROGRAM WORKING?
If not, the deworming treatment was a failure and should be investigated with your veterinarian to determine if improper dosing and/or resistance has affected the outcome.
The following can happen due to subclinical worm infections:
- Decreases in feed intake, average daily gain and milk production
- Poor immune response to viral vaccines and diseases
- Resistance to dewormers may keep increasing
To see if your deworming program is at least 90 percent effective, work with your veterinarian to conduct a Fecal Egg Count Reduction
