Anyone know anything about whipwirm? I helped my friend yesterday showing her how to do fecals and found a whipworm egg. She said they found a couple more today.

Anyone know if you multiply it by 50 for egg count? What is considered bad? How to treat?

Yes,always get rid of whip worms. Ivermectin plus Safeguard orally using a 6 hour fast on roughage or quest plus with carefully weighed goats.
Ivermectin and Safeguard second dose in 2 weeks, again in a month, and again in a month. Use a worming pen.
Quest plus use every 24 days for 3 doses.

I could swear I helped you with whipworms years ago?

These are human worms so they pass easily to their preferred host.
