New Parasites Found! Strongyle And Eimera

Recommended Posts

Stanley has been on treatment for hook worms as long as we have had him. Good news is I just learned he didn't have hook worm eggs found in his last stool sample. Bad news is that they found strongyle and eimera eggs in his stool. They said neither of these are an issue as they aren't parasitic to dogs and we likely see them passing through his stool because he had a snack of rabbit poop recently (I can confirm this is typical behavior for Stanley). I can find very little info on these types of parasites. Does anybody know anything about them? Should I trust the vet? They send the fecals to a lab and that is what the lab told them.
