Diagnose Giardia infections in canine and feline patients
Use the SNAP Giardia Test to identify the presence of Giardia in dogs and cats as an adjunct to a fecal flotation. The SNAP Giardia Test is the first USDA-approved in-house rapid assay for the detection of soluble Giardia antigen. It has been shown to find up to three times more Giardia-positive animals than using traditional microscope methods.1
The Companion Animal Parasite Council (CAPC) recommends testing symptomatic (intermittently or consistently diarrheic) dogs and cats with a combination of direct smear, fecal flotation with centrifugation, and a sensitive, specific fecal ELISA optimized for use in companion animals.2
