Crypto is a whole other story. Regular fecals don't test for it. Most vets charge around $100 american for a crypto test. I never bother with that unless there are signs of crypto. Crypto can only be transmitted through fecal contact, so again, cleanliness eliminates 99% of the risk.

If you were referring to me about the sick animal with the clean fecal, she was not sick, she was grossly underfed before I took her in. She doubled in weight two weeks after I took her in. A sick Leo would not have bounced back so quickly.
