No, your kit does not have an expiration date.
While the kit does not have an expiration date, all kits must be registered and returned to the lab within six months of purchase.
You will need a clean, fresh sample. It can sit at room temperature for up to 24 hours prior to mailing. If you are unable to mail the sample within 24 hours, keep the sample in the freezer until you are ready to send.
Start by gathering your collection tools from your box including: a glove, poop bag, collection tube and wooden stick.
Affix your unique ID sticker to the collection tube.
Take your pet for a walk and as soon as they poop, collect the stool in the poop bag (try to keep the sample free of debris including grass and dirt).
Once you have the dogs feces in the poop bag use the spork (attached to the inside of the lid of the collection tube or the wooden stick to scoop enough poop to fill the collection tube up to the red fill line.
Once the collection tube is filled to the red fill line with poop, screw the lid tightly onto the collection tube.
Write your pet’s name and the date on the collection tube where it says “Patient Name and Date.”
Put the collection tube into the biohazard bag and close the bag.
Your pet’s poop should be solid or semi-solid for best results. If you are able to pick up the poop with a poop bag, we will be able to run the test.
