Sorry if this is a dumb question, but will you always see the worms in your pig's feces? Just dewormed my daughter's gilt because she doesn't have much of an appetite. Never had a problem with ADG before with any of our other pigs, but we really need to push her now. Just not sure worms are really the issue. Her ADG is 1.67 we usually hit closer to 1.9/2.3. She's pretty small framed and looks good but not sure we're going to make it. She needs to gain 25 lbs. in 10 days. Think it's possible? Thanks in advance for any replies.

If she is overloaded in worms then yes, you will see them in her manure, she might even have a cough when they move upward while you all our out walking her.

Talk w/your vet to see if they can do a stool sample and then go from there.

Has you weather changed?

Good Luck!
