Faecal testing can be a great way to screen your pet for internal parasites such as worms and coccidia which can be life-threatening if left untreated. It can also be very helpful if your pet has diarrhoea or other gastrointestinal signs (including weight loss) to try to find what is causing your pet to be unwell.

Many of the species we see do not require regular worming unless they are exposed to new parasites, so it can also be a good way to see if your pet needs to be wormed rather than just treating your pet for parasites that it may not have.

In most cases we perform faecal testing on the spot and you will have the results within 10-15 minutes of the sample being taken.
