All kits contain a prepaid return postage.
The Giardia Antigen Kit is highly accurate and perfect for quick identification for those who suspect Giardia. The kit is simple to use and comes with full instructions. Should you suspect that your dog or cat has giardia (especially if they are very young or old) then we recommend purchasing this kit and testing as soon as possible. There is a video of “how to use” on our Facebook page.
Common Signs that Giardia is present:
- Giardia infection in dogs may lead to weight loss
- Chronic intermittent diarrhoea
- Fatty stool
- The stool may range from soft to watery
- Infected dogs tend to have excess mucus in the faeces
- Vomiting may occur in some cases
It is important to note that not every Dog or Cat will show all the clinical signs of Giardia.
NEW: Giardia Lab testing
This is a great option for those who do not feel confident in carrying out the Giardia home test themselves.
A kit will be sent for you to collect your sample, which will then be returned to the lab for testing. Your kit will include a prepaid returns envelope, information leaflet and a quick prep collection tube. Results will be emailed the same day as your sample is received by the lab and for a positive result a text will also be sent so that you do not miss your results.
