    Wait....FEC is fecal egg count. So did you mistype?

    Also, resistance issues do not occur due to overdosing. They occur due to underdosing.

    moxidectin is the Quest? Why would that be harmful for a donk? I have used it in the past on the larger donkey we had. It didn't "appear" to cause any issue.
