How often does my pet need a fecal test to check for parasites?
Fecal testing is recommended every 6 months but most only have it checked once a year at their annual check up.
Why does my pet need a fecal test?
This test is for both cats and dogs, and especially those who spend a lot of time outdoors. It’s extremely important to do fecal checks because a majority of all parasitic infections in dogs/cats are zoonotic which means humans can get them.
This is even more important in house holds that have children because we know how kids love to put things in their mouths and or aren’t washing their hands.
