    Where can you send your birds droppings in for evaluation? Does poop need to be refrigerated? How quickly does the sample need to be collected before drying out?

    I gave one of my birds Wazine17 as I believe she has worms. Some of her poop this mining has tiny white strings in it. Like little spaghetti noodles. She's acting much better today than yesterday.

    When the wazine kills the worms, are they exited with the poop?

    Thanks

    Samples should be fresh. Do you have a small animal vet? Call them and ask about having some fecals done. If you can't find one, call the labs in this pdf: http://www.aphis.usda.gov/animal_health/nahln/downloads/all_nahln_lab_list.pdf
