Test timescales

There is a ‘use by date’ on each giardia antigen test which MUST be adhered to.  The use by date will always be a minimum of 4 weeks from date of order.  Unfortunately, no refunds can be given for late submission or unused tests however please contact the office to discuss options if this occurs.

Worm count and giardia samples are tested and issued the same working day they arrive into the laboratory.  Lungworm tests are an extended overnight process, so they are always issued the following working day.

Savings are based on ordering worm count, lungworm and giardia tests individually.

Further information

A triple screen offers excellent value and is suitable for cats, dogs and reptiles. The screen conveniently and economically allows you to undertake a worm egg screen, lungworm screen and giardia, offering a considerable saving compared to ordering the screens separately.

The purpose of screening is to determine if there is a mature internal parasite burden at the time the sample was taken. If so, the species of parasite(s) will be identified, so that targeted and appropriate treatment can be given. Our trip screen is very comprehensive, providing accurate identification as well as quantitative results for each species of parasite where appropriate.

The collection kits are standard for all animals, however the screening process varies slightly depending on the species. We will take care of this once received into the lab. Three separate samples are required for this screen; a separate one day sample will be used for each of the worm count and giardia tests. A three day sample will be used to screen for lungworm.

The kits come with full instructions of the requirements and we recommend they are read and followed exactly.

This kit has been designed to provide ultimate sample protection during transit, whilst also minimising our environmental impact as far as practically possible.  The kit includes:

  • One recyclable padded envelope, made with 60% recycled material
  • Free tracked return 24hr postage
  • One white paper laboratory request form (worm count test) and test and instruction sheet
  • One red paper laboratory request form (lungworm test) and test and instruction sheet
  • One blue paper laboratory request form (giardia test) and test and instruction sheet with use by date
  • Three recyclable sample collection boxes in resealable write-on panelled bags
  • Two biodegradable second sealable bags
  • One biodegradable natural wood sampling spoon

All parasites are reported with their English and Latin names, which is useful if veterinary intervention is required.

Report 1 – Worm Count Test

Tested and issued the same working day the sample arrives into the lab.  The worm egg screen will identify and quantify of all species present within the family groups of:

  • Ascarids
  • Hookworms
  • Whipworms
  • Threadworms

In addition, as standard, this screen also reports on:

  • All species of cestodes (Tapeworms*)
  • Protozoa – Coccidia
  • Undigested lipids (qualitative analysis)
  • Undigested microscopic food particles (qualitative analysis)

*Tapeworms are very intermittent shedders and do not always show on a worm egg screen.  If present in the sample, the species will be identified. As they may not have been present when the sample was taken, it is advisable to use regular tapeworm specific treatment.

Report 2 – Giardia Test

Tested and issued the same working day the sample arrives into the lab. Using antigen technology, a separate report will be provided for the giardia lamblia antigens associated with the presence of giardia protozoan

Report 3 – Lungworm Test

The test is commenced the same working day that it arrives into the lab.  As it is an extended screen, it runs overnight and the results are issued the following working day.  The report will include all species of lungworm currently present in the UK associated with the specific type of animal (i.e. dog or cat) being screened.

If your dog or cat has been outside the UK, please contact us.

This triple screen comes with complete instructions for each portion of the test.  Please note that it requires two one day and a three-day sample.  Please take the samples from the first motion of the day and store the lungworm samples at room temperature whilst collecting.
