How fresh must a Fecal Sample be ?

4 Replies, 2002 Views

does a fecal from a frog matter on how old the feces would be to get it tested. i know this sounds like sort of a weird question i just thought that the older it is that it might lose some of the parasites. i'm not talking about weeks just days.

yes the fresher the better try to get one and seal it air tight in a ziploc, then send rush delivery to wherever it needs to go.
Hey Walt,

check out this page from Dr Frye it explain fecals and how to package for the best results.
i don't need to do this now but it crossed my mind and i decided to ask just in case i ever need to have it done.
i never even thought about going to the frye site for the info.
thanks again to all who answered.
walt
