Intestinal Parasite Exam
Also know as a fecal exam is usually performed during a wellness visit or if your pet is sick-having diarrhea or vomiting. It requires a stool sample. Your pet would really appreciate it if you would bring in a recent sample from that day so that we don’t have to collect it.
We perform testing on stool to mainly look for intestinal parasites causing illness in your pet. This is not only important to your pet but some of these parasites can cause disease in humans as well.
