Cat Fecal Exam

What’s the scoop on cat poop? Fecal exams are used to determine a diagnosis, treatment plans, medications and dewormer. Fecal analysis can help us find parasites that may be causing your cat grief.

What is a cat fecal parasite screen?

Most internal parasites are invisible to the naked eye; this means we need to look on a microscopic level.

What does a fecal parasite screen reveal?

Under the microscope, we look for ova (eggs) or adult parasites that we can identify, qnd then we come up with an appropriate treatment plan tailored to your pet’s needs.

How is a fecal parasite screen performed?

We ask that you bring in a fresh sample, then we run a fecal centrifugation test and look at the sample under the microscope.

What is the best method for collecting my cat’s stool?

Using non-clumping litter, such as “yesterday’s news”, you will be able to collect a sample from the litter box with minimal sand contamination.

How much does a cat stool test cost?

Please call and have one of our health care staff provide you with a detailed estimate.
