How long will specimens last during shipping?

Because of our unique 3-container mailing system, specimens will remain fresh for up to 3 weeks after mailing.  Parasite eggs are very similar to chicken eggs.  They are quite resilient and will remain intact long after they reach their “expiration date”.  I have actually examined an old,  dried up “road apple” and easily identified Strongyle eggs throughout the sample.

Where is my report?

Fecal results should be sent to you within a week of you mailing in the sample.  Before calling or emailing us for your late results, please check your spam folder.  More than likely, you’ll find your report there!
