How do I store stool samples Its saturday, I cant take

Customer Question

How do I store stool samples? It's saturday, I can't take in until Monday. Fridge, freezer? Will it still be okay by Monday for testing. I have four cats, so it's difficult to catch him in the act. Thanks!

Thanks for the questionCustomer

In direct answer to your question : Do not store stool samples in the freezer, the fridge should be fine. Of course get the most fresh samples you can but it is difficult with cats I know.

If I have not covered your question fully enough or you would like to ask more I will be online for the next hour or so and I will be at your disposal.
