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.

What is a cat fecal parasite screen?


A fecal parasite screen is a useful diagnostic tool used to help you understand the gastrointestinal health of your cat. Often when they are having digestive tract issues, fecal examinations identify parasite loads or bacterial overgrowths within the gut. These screens usually provide us with enough information to help make an accurate diagnosis and effectively treat your cat.
