All animals can have parasites during the summer months. Parasites already inside your animals live and thrive during the summer making it harder on your animals to withstand the stress of heat during the warmer months. While egg counts in horses fecal samples are usually more in the summer months, and a majority of the time there is evidence of eggs. No matter what species you have, if you missed the fall worming, make sure it is taken care of as soon a possible.
