Further information

This enhanced parasite test is suitable for reptiles only.  The purpose of this screen is to determine if there is an internal parasite burden at the time the sample was taken. If so, the species of parasite will be identified, so that targeted and appropriate treatment can be given. Our enhanced screen provides additional detail compared the standard worm count test. This enhanced screen provides accurate identification as well as quantitative results for each species of parasite where appropriate.

Please note that this test requires a 3-day sample, this can be collected over several days. While this can be difficult to achieve with some exotic species, if you have any problems, please contact the office for advice. The kits come with full instructions of the requirements, and we recommend they are read and followed exactly.
