Fecal Testing - Please read before clicking 'Next'
Fecal testing is used to detect intestinal parasites in your pet. Common intestinal parasites include hookworms, roundworms, whipworms, and Giardia. Intestinal parasites can lead to vomiting, diarrhea, blood in stool, and weight loss. Some of these parasites can be transmitted to humans and cause illness.
Even if you are not seeing worms in your pet's stool, this does not rule out intestinal parasites. Most intestinal worms will stay within the body and shed eggs which can only be detected through microscopic evaluation. Due to this, it is recommended that your pet's feces be checked every 6-12 months for parasites.
If you elect to have a fecal test performed, please collect a fresh sample of stool on the day of the appointment.
