Wellness Testing For Cats And Dogs
Intestinal Parasite Testing
Pets are susceptible to getting intestinal parasites, a source of disease in not only dogs and cats, but also in those who care for them. The four most common parasites affecting pets are roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, and tapeworms.
By performing fecal testing for parasites two times per year, we are able to identify, treat, and prevent the parasites your pet may come in contact with. The monthly medication used to prevent heartworm disease also aids in preventing parasites.
- Bloodwork (including CBC, Chemistry, and Thyroid) is essential for evaluating the condition of your pet’s internal organs.
- A CBC (complete blood count) delivers information to detect anemia, infection, abnormal blood cells, and blood-borne parasites.
- A Chemistry Screen assesses the kidneys, liver, and other organs. With a Chem Screen, we evaluate electrolytes, blood proteins, and glucose to monitor for the onset of diabetes.
- A Thyroid Screen evaluates the possibility of an overactive or underactive thyroid gland.
