A Fecal egg count is a snap shot of a specific moment in time. The test detects eggs of mature parasites that live inside the body and pass their eggs to the outside by shedding them into the dogs stool’s. It is possible that at the time of testing the parasites are too young to produce eggs, if no eggs are being shed the infection cannot be detected. There is also a possibility the eggs are In such small numbers at the time of testing they would be undetectable Thus showing a negative result.
The above is extremely rare but we would like to point out the possibilities.

Chemical or natural wormers
Increasing numbers of pet owners are turning away from chemical wormers, preferring to use herbal products. However, is the herbal remedy you use really suited to your particular animal?
Perhaps you chose not to worm at all. But can you be absolutely sure that your animal has not picked up a parasite from another animal whilst having a friendly sniff? Does he go out for walks? Could he have eaten something that is full of worms?
Whether you regularly worm using chemical or natural wormers, or you have chosen not to worm at all, the only way to have peace of mind is to be sure that your regime is working. A worm count will check the parasite burden in your animal. It must be remembered though, that a worm count, like an MOT for your car, is only a snapshot of what is going on inside your animal at that moment. You need to check regularly to ensure the well-being of your pet.
