The new VetScan Imagyst offers us the most modern examination standard and enables us to examine your pet’s faeces within a few minutes.
“Simple analysis. Classify intelligently. Targeted therapy. VETSCAN IMAGYST is a validated system that automatically stores images taken by the microscope in a cloud. There they are evaluated by an artificial intelligence. With VETSCAN IMAGYST, endoparasites in dogs and cats can be easily diagnosed on site in the practice with high specificity and sensitivity and the appropriate therapy can be initiated directly. The automation and standardisation of the processes reduces the risk of human error.” [Zoetis, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABbZQ1Ffugo]
So in the future, we will do all the testing for worms and giardia with this device.
Why should faeces be examined regularly?
There are different types of worms that your pet can get infected with.
A worm infestation is a zoonosis, which means that you can also be infected with worms.
Depending on the age, husbandry and diet of your pet, medication and prevention should be carried out individually. Factors such as living closely with small children or immunocompromised persons may require closer monitoring.
We will be happy to advise you on how often you should deworm your pet or have a faecal examination.
