FECAL EXAMINATION

How do you proceed?

18 euros

+ €3,50/per additional sample

Sampling:

Take some feces from the coop/cage/aviary and place it in a plastic bag/jar/envelope/folded paper. A filled bottom of 3 cm is more than sufficient. Make sure to collect both fresh (wet) and older (dry) feces from different days and various locations.

You can choose to take the manure from different animals separately or together. 

 

Shipping manure sample:

Place the manure together with the form to be downloaded in an envelope and stick it on. Envelope weight: 0-100 grams (2 stamps); 100-350grams (3 stamps). Shipping must take place on the day of sampling.

You can always bring the manure directly to us at the practice.
