Learning to do my own fecals.
Can someone tell me if this is a cocci egg?
It doesn't look like cocci to me.
It doesn't really look like a worm egg at all.
Maybe a mite egg.
What about @MuldrowBeeandGoatFarm or @Moers kiko boars ?
What do you think?
Definitely not a cocci. Honestly, it may be just some plant matter.
That’s the only egg looking thing I have seen so far in 3 fecals.
You'll notice that the cocci are about half, maybe 1/3 the size of a strongyle and perfect little faint ovals that are almost egg shaped with an interior structure.
So, this thing I am looking at, has no interior structure, is that it?
Correct. I think it may be pollen of some sort!
Your welcome! I've been doing them for a year now so feel free to message me !
I am planning to practice once a week, and then compare my findings with their fall fecals from the vet.
I hope to get good at it eventually!
Here's a chart I have saved that might help. Not sure who posted it originally but it's helpful
Thanks GoofyGoat! That’s great!
Here is the chart we use but I really like the one @GoofyGoat posted!
but no, I do not see coccidia on your slide. This is one of our last slides
So, is that a lung worm?
What # of lens power are you using? It looks like a 10. I would try 40x or more. More shows up with a higher magnification.
This was on 10x, you guessed right. When I try to put it on 40x, the objective lens touches the slide. Is there a trick to this?
Yes, we believed it was a lungworm so we treated for it.
My microscope has an adjustable knob but it does touch the slide on 40x if we are not careful.
