Five Point Check

  1. 1. FIVEPoint Check© The Five Point Check® (5.✓)is an extension of the FAMACHA© eye anemia system, which is only useful for blood-feeding parasites such as the barber pole worm (Haemonchus contortus). The 5.✓ adds additional criteria (checkpoints) for the other parasites that commonly infect small ruminants, including those that cause digestive upset (scours) and snotty noses. It is also useful for determining the need to treat small ruminants with FAMACHA© scores of 3. The 5.✓ was developed by the same South African scientists who developed the FAMACHA© system. 1 - EYE Anemia (blood loss) FAMACHA© score 2 - JAW Submandibular edema “bottle jaw” 3 - BACK Body condition score (1-5) 4 - TAIL Scours (diarrhea) Fecal soiling, dags 5 - NOSE Nasal discharge, snotty nose - Nasal bots ❶ ❷ ❸ ❹ ❺ Each of the five checkpoints can have other causes. This is especially true with low body condition score (#3) and scours (#4). For this reason, it is important to consider ALL of the criteria when making deworming decisions. Selective deworming increases refugia and slows the development of resistant worms. wormX.info
