Pet Fecal Assay

At Express Vet NM, we believe the best way to detect parasites is by testing a fresh fecal sample for the parasite’s eggs.

Fecal Assay

Fecal tests provide insights regarding any intestinal parasites that may be inhabiting your pet’s body. Intestinal parasites are organisms that live, grow, and feed in the intestinal tract taking away nutrition and, in severe cases, causing illnesses such as anorexia, diarrhea, vomiting, anemia, or even death.

The best way to detect parasites is by testing a fresh fecal sample for the parasite’s eggs. Treatment may vary depending on the type of parasite found, but it usually consists of oral medication.
