Parasite test without a DR?
« on: March 30, 2010, 06:19:49 AM »
Does anyone know where/how to get a stool sample tested for parasites without going through a dr? With money low, I'd rather save the new patient cost to see about these weird symptoms I'm having since returning from India. Does giardia stay in your system once you get it, or should it have flushed out  by eight months?

Can u call ur local medical lab that doctors would use. I am not sure if you can go in there without a Drs prescription....but it is worth a call. Sometimes there are universys or colleges that have prgrams that can do these kinds of things too. Maybe even your vet?!?
