For the most part they are checking for parasites, and you can get them done by a vet. A vet who specializes in exotics would be best.

If you don't know for sure that your auratus were captive bred I'd have fecals done. I placed a farm raised auratus with captive bred ones and I lost some of my favorate frogs. There are a lot of blues, greens and acon hills coming in from the wild. So I would have fecals done.
