    Could someone tell me what bad verse good counts for cocci are on a fecal? I did fecals today and one had 12, the other 8.....are these bad numbers? We have been fighting the stuff for about 3wks :hair: !

    I'm not totally sure, but that doesn't sound too high to me. I mean you don't want to have a totally clean fecal or you aren't going to be allowing them to get their own immunity too it.

    That amount isn't anything to worry about--I would consider more than 20 to be high. Like someone else said, cocci are always going to be there, it just a matter of keeping it under control.

    1-5 very rare(no treatment) 6-10 rare(treatment optional but not needed) 10-15 cant remember the way the vet said it , but treatment recommended 16+ was called severe and of course treat asap. Hope this helps :greengrin:

    welcome :greengrin:

    Till I had the fecal done on Luna I didn't know, but after I made him give me the grades so when I do my own I know when to treat :thumb:
