Fecal Exam

Test For Parasites

Fecal tests

Fecal tests are done to evaluate the presence of intestinal parasites (e.g., Giardia, roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, coccidia). It is important to check periodically for parasites (once or twice a year depending on the animal's environment), even if stools are consistently normal. Parasites can cause significant intestinal problems in both animals and humans (some parasites can be transmitted from animals to humans). Tests for parasites are done routinely in animals with abnormal stools. Specific treatment is prescribed based on results.
