Equine Diarrhea Panel Plus
|WADDL - Pullman||Bacteriology||Mon-Fri|
The Equine Diarrhea Plus Panel looks for common causes of gastroenteritis in horses. The presence of bacterial pathogens, including Salmonella and clostridial infections are assessed using varying methods (see list below). Rhodococcus equi will be assessed in foals.
The presence of parasitic pathogens, including protozoa and helminths, are assessed using Fecal Flotation.
If clostridial infection are not suspected please see the Equine Diarrhea Panel.
This panel does not include tests for other causes of gastroenteritis in horses such as viruses (rotavirus, coronavirus, others), fungi and algae. However, the laboratory will assist with additional testing as needed.
This panel includes a 5% savings compared to ordering these tests individually.
Tests included in this panel:
- Enteric Aerobic Culture
- Fecal Float
- Clostridium perfringens Culture
- Clostridium perfringens toxin genotyping PCR
- Clostridioides difficile Culture

Please note, when ordering this panel we cannot discount the cost of Clostridium perfringens toxin genotyping PCR if no Clostridium perfringens was isolated.
