Identifying goat intestinal worms
Good news --- finding worm eggs in a goat fecal sample
is pretty easy. Just focus on the air bubbles at 10x and look for oval
shapes on the same level that are just a little larger. Zoom in to 40x
to confirm your ID and figure out the species. Thread worm is
distinctive because you can actually see a little worm wriggling around
inside the egg, while most other eggs look more like the top picture to
the right (which I may or may not have identified correctly to species).
