Feclab Lungworm Kit

Dog Lungworm

Unlike intestinal parasites, lungworms reside in the lungs of a dog. Most dogs will not show any signs of having lungworms, but some can develop a cough. Snails and slugs are popular intermediate hosts of this type of parasite, but dogs are usually infected after eating a bird or rodent who has ingested an intermediate host. or drinking from streams or puddles.

Lungworm

Our Lungworm faecal sample test is done using a technique called Baermann flotation , which may show larvae of both Angiostrongylus and Crenosoma but bear in mind that larvae may only be present intermittently in the faeces and dogs may show clinical signs such as coughing prior to the larvae being present in the faeces.

The faecal sample is suspended in a solution for 24 hours, Then analysed, Lungworm Faecal tests are not 100% , if you know of Lungworm cases in your area a veterinary blood test is advisable.

Each Worm Count Kit contains a freepost envelope for sending the sample back to the lab. You will receive your results within 48 - 72 hours of receipt via email or post - whichever you prefer. All samples are tested twice to give a professional and accurate result.
