Frequently Asked Questions

Which pets are at a higher risk of becoming infected by an internal parasite?

  • Puppies and kittens
  • Dogs that visit dog parks
  • Dogs that travel and use communal restroom areas
  • Outdoor cats and dogs or multiple animal households

How can my pet even contract an intestinal parasite?

Does your dog or cat drink from standing water, rivers, lakes or ponds? If so, they can be at risk of ingesting a common parasite called Giardia, that is able to spread to humans. Hookworm is a highly contagious parasite that can be contracted from recreational areas. This intestinal parasite migrates from the contaminated soil onto your pet’s skin and can also be infectious to humans. Puppies and kittens are highly susceptible to intestinal parasites due to their immature immune systems and can be born with parasites transferred from their mother. Intestinal parasites can many times prove fatal to young puppies and kittens if undiagnosed and untreated.

Wouldn’t I see worms in my pets’ feces if they had fecal parasites?

Many intestinal parasites are microscopic and are NOT seen with the naked eye.

Do I need an appointment for the fecal test? How long does the test take?

No you do not need an appointment for the fecal test, if your pet has a current exam with one
of our veterinarians, you simply drop off a fecal sample at any time. We need a fresh feces sample the size of a small Tootsie Roll. We will contact you within 48 hours with results. If your pet does not have a current exam you will need to call our office to schedule an appointment.

Does you dog travel with you? Is your dog ever exposed to mosquitoes?
Does your dog play or walk in communal dog areas?

If the answer is yes to any of these questions, your pup is at risk for the fatal parasite called Heartworm, as well as a multitude of other contagious fecal parasites. Heartworm is spread by infected mosquitos and after time the worms mature and take over the canine heart. Heartworm infections are extremely difficult and dangerous to treat.

Your pet can pick up these contagious parasites by walking on infected soil or grass where contagious dogs defecate. These parasites are microscopic, and some are contagious to humans. As long as your pet has a current examination you can come in at your convenience for the heartworm test and Interceptor Plus. Our trained technicians will be happy to draw a small blood sample and we will have the results in approx. 15-20 minutes.

Every pet must have a negative heartworm test prior to dispensing heartworm preventative.
