The Egg Count method is a quantitative technique to determined eggs per gram of feces (epg). Fecal egg counts (FEC) are a useful tool to monitor parasite infection levels. In selective control programs all animals of a herd/flock should be tested at the same time. Large variation in counts from individual animals in the same herd/flock can occur. A FEC of 200 epg and above indicates treatment. When using FEC to monitor drug efficacy it is essential that the same animal that was tested for the pre-treatment level is also the one tested post-treatment (10-14 days after treatment).
