Giardia is a simple, single-celled parasite that can cause illness and diarrhoea in both animals and humans, known as giardiasis. Giardiasis can result in diarrhoea, vomiting, weight loss, watery stools and can be dangerous for dogs, cats and humans who are immune compromised.

It is wise to test for giardia if you have:

  • Young puppies and kittens
  • Older dogs and cats
  • Dogs or cats undergoing treatment which lowers their immunity
  • Or if you or a family member has HIV/AIDS, cancer, is undergoing chemotherapy or has other illness which compromises the immune system

Because giardia is spread through faeces, it's wise to test dogs and cats every 2-3 months. Please read our blog for a more comprehensive explanation, including symptoms, treatments and more about the test.

This is a home testing kit:

  • Simple and easy to do with full instructions
  • Get the results in 5-10 minutes
  • It's a standard veterinary test
  • Take it with you to the vet if you get a positive result
  • No need to post to the lab

What's in the kit?

  • Full instructions
  • Gloves
  • A rapid test cassette
  • Pipette
  • Buffer

How does it work?

  • Collect a sample of your dog's faeces
  • Place the swab containing the faeces into the buffer tube and stir thoroughly
  • Open the cassette and position it on a flat, clean surface
  • Use the pipette to collect a sample of the buffer/specimen
  • Drip 4 drops of the mixture into the specimen well on the cassette. Start the timer
  • Results are read between 10-15 mins.

Pack size: 1 test

Important note:

This test is not intended as a replacement for worming your pet in the first place, it is merely a way of monitoring the worm egg burden of your dog or cat and treating accordingly. Many owners choose to worm their pets while others never do, and that is of course entirely your decision. However, we strongly recommend that puppies and kittens follow a veterinary flea and worming schedule as they will have inherited a parasite burden from their mother, and not to do so can pose a serious health risk to very young animals. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Industry standard screening methods are employed by the laboratory. Faecal worm egg screens, larvae counts and giardia antigen screening are not, and can never be, a definitive reporting method. Every reasonable effort is made by the laboratory to ensure the accuracy and uniformity of screening methods. The result must be read as a snapshot of the content of the sample at the time it arrives in the laboratory and is only an indication of the worm burden of the animal.
