The cost of fecals is so nominal it is not a money making racket for any vet - in fact, selling you on unneccessary de-worming would be much more lucrative for them.  The point to using fecal guided treatment is to try to avoid the very issue that exists today with the ever increasing issue of resistance in the parasites due to the overuse/misuse of deworming medications.

Where are we going, and why are we in this hand basket?

Yes, I understand the purpose of fecal guided worming, but it's generally not necessary, especially if you rotate the types of wormers you use. To you the cost is nominal, but to me it's not, especially having multiple animals. It really adds up for the customer, and it adds up in profit for the vet. Vets don't sell me wormer, I buy it at the farm supply. If the vet wants to sell it to me for below retail, I'll buy it from him. Lol
