Prevalence of parasite eggs (Strongyloides westeri, Parascaris equorum, and strongyles) and oocysts (Emeria leuckarti) in the feces of Thoroughbred foals on 14 farms in central Kentucky in 2003.
Parasitol Res. 2004 Mar; 92(5):400-4.PR

Abstract

Prevalence of internal parasites was determined by fecal examination for eggs and oocysts in Thoroughbred foals in central Kentucky in 2003. Fecal samples were examined from 733 foals on 14 farms. This included 70 trips to the farms and a total of 2,346 fecal samplings. Monthly collection of fecal samples was begun for four farms in February, six in March, three in April, and one farm in May. Termination of the study for all farms was the end of July. A criterion was that the foals be at least 10 days old for initial samplings. If available, the same foals were sampled each time, in addition to foals born in the interim between farm visits. Ages of the foals for the complete study varied from 10 to 223 days. Prevalence (mean %) was determined for eggs of Strongyloides westeri (1.5%), Parascaris equorum (22.4%), and strongyles (27.6%) and for oocysts of Eimeria leuckarti (41.6%) in feces of foals. Foals had infections of S. westeri on six farms (42.9%), of P. equorum on 12 farms (86%), and of strongyles and E. leuckarti on all 14 farms (100%).
