Researchers at NCSU-CVM are participating in a national study investigating the occurrence of Salmonella infections in pet dogs and cats. We are collecting stool samples from pet dogs and cats:

Testing Requirements:

Culture requires a minimum 1 gram fecal sample. Sample must be <24 hours collected.


All cats and dogs are eligible. Only one animal per household may participate.

Financial Incentive:

The study will cover the cost of one Salmonella fecal culture. If positive, the study will not cover the cost of treatment, but will cover two post-treatment cultures. All cultures are performed at the NCSU-VHC.
