    My Billy was supposed to have gotten his last dose of Cydectin on Thursday this week. I forgot and did not give it to him until today, (Saturday) . It was 2 days late. I hope all is ok with this. What do you think,?

    If it is within 7 to 10 days you are fine.

    Hatching eggs happen around 10 days, so, it may not of done the trick. When eggs hatched and it re-blooms the worm cycle again.

    Has it been at least 2 weeks after last treatment?
    If so, you can get another sample.

    When I pull a sample, it takes a full day to get the report. I have to go around 7am and get fresh sample then drive 30 miles to vet, leave it hanging on door and then maybe he will call me before lunch next day with results. If I wait ten days, pull sample, get report, then it is almost 12 days giving second dose. I thought if I waited that long, the worms (if she still has them , would bloom again, thus defeating my cycle. what do you think.

    Just do a 3rd treatment within the 7-10 days and you will be fine. No need for another fecal.
