ditto ~ I recommend getting new arrivals feacal checked right at the start too as this can help pinpoint/catch any problems before they get out of hand and the leos health suffer ~ soonest checked soonest sorted... another thing as well is that when a leo is stressed (for example moved to a new home/owner) there's a risk that the stress can lower it's immune system allowing a previously small or unknown issue to quickly get out of control.

This is the one I used to to test my dragon. It tests for cociddia as well which can be devastating so worth the extra few quid to catch it early if its there.
