How fresh must a Fecal Sample be ?

Postby pa.walt » Thu Sep 01, 2005 11:33 pm

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.
