The workshop will consist of a classroom presentation and a hands-on fecal egg counting lab. Attendees will learn about chemical/non-chemical means of parasite control, signs of parasitism, health monitoring techniques, and concerns about dewormer resistance. Attendees will receive their own FEC test kits.

Participants will be asked to bring a fresh fecal sample for lab analysis.

How to Collect a Fecal Sample From Your Animal

· Fresh is always best! We recommend a sample no older than 12-24 hours.

· Use a zippered baggie to collect sample.

· Be sure to mark the bag with the animal’s name and date.

· Collect 6-8 fecal balls.

· Keep chilled/refrigerated until workshop.
