Animal Fecal Testing?
I have a potbellied pig, a goat, and thirteen chickens. I live in Boulder County. I'm trying to find a vet to whom I can give fecal samples from all three species to determine whether I need to deworm them.
They have been seen by a vet, but I'm not happy with his care. I've called a number of dog/cat vets in the area, and I don't get past the receptionist. They all say that unless the animals are patients, they won't do the test.
I am just trying to do the best by the animals. I don't want to deworm them if they don't need it. Is there an solution?
If you want to have the animals tested, contact Colorado State University Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences in Fort Collins. Their phone number is 970-491-7051.
