    I have been quoted £60 for the test alone (SAR + CAMP) to find out the cause of my kittens poorly tummy.

    But another place has quoted my £20 so big difference!!

    What do I need to check they are testing for?

    Thanks

    £20 would be amazingly cheap for any test - unless the vet is doing it in house? Some vets carry out certain tests within the practice for certain things; others will need to be sent out to a lab which obviously involves lab fees, hence the greater expense, usually.

    Sar I'm not sure on; Camp I imagine is campylobacter.
