    Not necessarily. Like with many other infectious disease, signs and symptoms can be vague.

    They do have rapid tests for salmonella that are very similar to pregnancy tests. You use a stool sample which is a lot easier to get than a blood sample. They're like 5/$40.

    Where does one get the test? Internet? (I live more than an hour's drive away from the nearest vet.)
