Has anyone used a company for a stool sample for their dog? If so how much was it? And how did it work (sending the stool off and getting results and timings?) Thanks

What do you want to check for?

Wanted to check for parasites and coccidiosis as someone we know recently had a dog with it and since our dog has had bouts of gloopy diarrhoea

You maybe better to do the sample through your vets a) so that the right tests are chosen b) some labs will only report 'clinical results' to vets c) so you can get appropriate treatment as the numbers are only half the puzzle the clinical condition of your dog is very important in determining treatment course.
