Total Fecal Tests Plus Giardia - Cat
Your pet’s poop provides valuable health information.
According to data compiled by the Companion Animal Parasite Council (CAPC), nearly 1.4 million dogs and cats tested positive for at least one intestinal parasite in 2020.1 Hookworms, roundworms, and Giardia can infect people, so regular testing of your pet’s feces every 6 to 12 months and monthly deworming is recommended.2
We use the most accurate and recommended intestinal parasite test method, centrifugal flotation technique, for all assessments. This technique is the preferred procedure for uncovering hidden intestinal parasites and ova (eggs) in your pet’s feces.3
Our Total Fecal Tests plus Giardia includes a cutting-edge ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) to detect Giardia infection.
In addition, this fecal test panel includes a microscopic review by a laboratory expert.
