Fecal 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 feces. Regular fecal testing can help detect parasites sooner, which means earlier treatment and better outcomes.

Detect up to 5X more infections earlier than fecal O&P alone1–3

Hookworm, roundworm, whipworm, flea tapeworm, and now, Cystoisospora. More parasite detection than ever, and up to 5x more infections found than with fecal ova and parasite detection by centrifugation (fecal O&P) alone.
