Fecal Sample Instructions

Brown Dog Cuddling Orange Cat

We need a fecal sample from your pet!

  • Please bring in a fresh fecal sample about the size of a quarter or larger (it can be placed in a sandwich bag or small container)

  • Make sure that the sample is less than an hour old, before bringing it straight down (no appointment required)

  • If you can not make is straight down, you can place the fresh sample in the fridge for up to 12 hours.

  • The samples are sent out to the lab and results are returned after one business day.

Thank you for doing this messy task; this valuable lab test will better help us to monitor your pet’s health.
