Fecal sample question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ok- so I posted a few days ago about my kitty possibly (most likely) having a worms relapse. I am bringing him into the vet tonight. Of course they asked for a fecal sample and I have been trying to get a fresh one for almost three days now but my little monster is being uncooperative and only pooing when I am at work during the day. Can anyone tell my if a sample taken from the box after, say, half a day or so will still be useful? I also have the worm-thing I dug out of his box so I will bring that as well as proof, but I am afraid they will refuse to give me a worm medication unless they can get a definite fecal float positive on worm eggs. Since I work during the day, I can only do vet appts in the evenings, which thank goodness my vet does, although I usually have to wait a week or so. We are leaving for Christmas next week and I really want to get a first does of dewormer in before then, so I am pretty determined to get this done.

So how fresh does the poop need to be?

Go ahead and bring one left the same day as the appointment. If they don't like that sample they can pull one directly from the cat during the visit.
