    I want to learn to do my own fecals and have been reading every thing I can....those of you that do your own, what in your opinion is the best kit and do you use the McMaster Fecal counting slide?

    Great link for the topic..... I am gonna try my hand at it. Set up shouldn't be to bad, bout $100-150 or so. but think if you spend $35 (which is what it cost me) per fecal per goat, I have 4 now and hopefully more to come, I will make back the cost on the fist set of tests. also you can test more frequently and on other animals (dogs, cats, cows, sheep) so lets see. Might even be a way to earn a little extra $$ :shrug:
