Consumables FAQs

Can this test be used on cats?

Yes, however since cats typically only have 1-2 worms, the sensitivity is lower.

What is the sensitivity and specificity of the VetScan Canine and Feline Heartworm Rapid Test?

Canine Sensitivity: 92% Canine Specificity: 100%; Feline Sensitivity: 77.9% Feline Specificity: 99.7%

How does the Heartworm antigen test work?

Sample and specific colloidal gold-conjugated antibodies combine in the conjugate pad creating antigen-antibody-gold conjugate. The test is pre-coated with antigen-specific antibodies at the test “T” line. The conjugates flow across the membrane and bind to the antibodies in the test line forming a “sandwich”. The accumulation of “sandwich” complexes in the test “T” line creates a visible signal.

Where can I find the lot number?

The lot number can be found on the top and bottom of the box.
