My Pet's Stool Test Is Positive!Updated 8 months ago

The next steps after getting any results (positive or negative) depends on the reason for testing and the pet’s health situation, among other factors like pet medical history and lifestyle.

A good place to start is MySimplePetLab support page under Routine Stool Tests - Dog Stool Learning Center or Cat Stool Learning Center. Choose the parasite your pet tested positive for and you will find a standard set of frequently asked questions (FAQ) and answers for general interpretation and advice of test results.

Sources customer support cannot provide pet-specific medical advice (e.g., treatment based on MySimplePetLab test result). While customer support is available by online chat at during normal business hours, emailing [email protected], or by calling 1-833-PET-TEST (1-833-738-8378), pet owners should contact a local or virtual veterinarian for pet-specific medical consultation.

MySimplePetLab is founded and guided by veterinarians. We believe in the value of the veterinary-client-patient relationship (VCPR) and encourage you to share your pet’s test results with a local or virtual veterinarian for professional medical perspective and guidance; whether the results come back negative or positive.

Keep in mind that a test result is not the same as a veterinarian’s diagnosis. A diagnosis requires health history, physical exam findings, and maybe other tests to determine the safest and most effective treatment or prevention plan, tailored to your pet’s unique needs.
