Cat Fecal Exam

Feline fecal tests are used to examine the contents of your cat’s fecal matter. Feline feces can be a concern because it can transmit harmful zoonotic parasites such as Toxoplasma gondii. Pregnant women and children can particularly be at risk from some of the diseases transmitted through feces. Our doctors at the Airdrie Animal Health Centre can help you understand if a fecal exam for your cat is necessary.
