Why Fecal Testing Is Important for Pets
At Ashburn Village Animal Hospital, we follow the Center for Disease Control's (CDC's) recommendation for frequent fecal checks and intestinal parasite prevention and control (deworming). We send all of our fecal samples out to the lab and call clients the next day with the results (positive or negative).
- Annual fecal examinations are recommended on all animals as part of a yearly health exam and should be done every 6 months if your dog attends daycare or boards regularly.
- Parasite infections can be present for some time before you would even notice any symptoms.
- Regular veterinary check-ups and fecal exams are important and the only way to ensure your best friend stays parasite free (and you too!).
