First you need to collect a fresh fecal sample. I collect 3 - 4 beans in a sandwich bag and mark the alpacas name on it. It is
possible to take a sample from the rectum but I prefer to just wait until my alpacas oblige me. If your not going to be doing the sample right away, make sure to refrigerate it.
You need to track all of the eggs that you find. I've included pics of the majority of eggs that you are likely to encounter.
Check with your vet to see if the count warrants deworming and if so, what dewormer and dosage to use.
