Faecal Dx antigen testing

For early, accurate detection of the most common, clinically relevant intestinal parasites—even before eggs are present.1–3

Bad news for parasites.

Parasites are an ongoing hazard to the health of both pets and sometimes their human family members. Pets can be at risk simply by being outside. Some parasites can burrow into a pet’s feet or skin. Pets can also swallow parasites while grooming, nursing or eating contaminated soil or faeces. Regular faecal testing can help detect parasites sooner, which means earlier treatment and better outcomes.

Detect up to 5X more infections earlier than faecal flotation alone1–3

Hookworm, roundworm, whipworm, flea tapeworm, and now Cystoisospora. More parasite detection than ever, and up to 5x more infections found than with faecal flotation by centrifugation alone.
