Buddycare's Cat Worm Egg Count Test Kits are a comprehensive way of testing your cat for tapeworm, roundworm, hookworm and whipworm. Our unique test kits provides pet parents with a means of identifying if they need to use a dewormer, giving you both peace of mind, and saving money being spent unnecessarily, should your cat not have an infestation.
Recently given your pet a wormer? This test kit can check whether your wormer worked correctly approximately 10-14 days after worming.
To provide these insights, we examine a sample of your pet's faecal matter under a microscope to determine the number of eggs from adult worms within your cat's intestinal tract. With results expected within 48 hours (excluding weekends), we'll notify you when you can book a Free Vet Nurse Consult with our Lead Veterinary Nurse, Fiona, to discuss the outcome of the test, along with recommendations on dewormers, should you be in need of one. Not only does this save you the time and expense of booking an appointment at the vets, but as our consults are online and fully remote, you can have the test results delivered to you in the comfort of your home.
Tests examine faecal matter for signs of tapeworm, roundworm, hookworm and whipworm. This is achieved by counting the number of eggs from adult worms within your cat's intestinal tract.

Please feel free to open up a live chat, or book a free vet nurse consultation with myself, to discuss how often you should be conducting a worm egg count test. During our chat I can also give you advice on using deworming medication, which naturally varies from pet to pet depending on a variety of things, like if they are regularly flea treated, if they are raw fed, if your cat is a hunter etc.
