Fecal Dx antigen testing

Double your detection of intestinal parasite infections 

Detects 2X more parasites than fecal ova and parasites (O&P) alone.1

A single result identifies hookworm, roundworm, and whipworm infections up to 30 days earlier, even when eggs are not present.2

Early, definitive results help you diagnose and treat effectively, reducing the risk of infection to other pets and family members.

Why antigen testing?

The Companion Animal Parasite Council (CAPC) guidelines recommend including fecal antigen testing to diagnose hookworm, roundworm, and whipworm infections.3–5

Fecal antigen testing can identify infections that can be missed when using other methods.1 Because the testing detects antigens, positive results confirm the presence of worms in the intestinal tract. This allows you to diagnose infections when worms are not shedding eggs or infections that are caused by worms of a single sex.
