We removed 4 bots from 4 dogs this summer.
The dogs were brought in with odd swellings, this is what was removed!

Question: I have added a new horse to our herd. I have dewormed once.
My question is: how long should I wait to do a second dose?
It's been a week and there were lots of worms in the feces.
Answer: You can deworm again anytime now. The only reason for 2 dewormings is to avoid worm impaction from big kill off.

I have had a number of calls lately about horses on a regular, consistent deworming program actually passing worms.
Normally we would have a significant snow pack covering the ground, preventing
the horses from picking up parasite eggs. Horses that are exposed to grassy
pasture are coming in contact with more eggs than normal.
The solution is to give an additional wormer now, followed by the normal wormer in April/May.
