Dog Urinalysis and Fecal Exam

Both urine and fecal exams are extremely helpful in diagnosing health issues with your dog. A sterile urine sample is collected from your dog, to help diagnose diabetes, urinary tract infections, bladder stones/crystals, urinary incontinence, poisonings, or renal neoplasia. Fecal exams determine the internal parasite load in your dog. Internal parasites can cause disease and thriftiness in the host, severe infections result in weight loss, dehydration and anemia. Some internal parasite eggs that are shed into the environment from your dog live in the soil for many years causing reinfection in other animals, and infections in humans.

Why are canine fecal examinations recommended yearly?

We like to check for parasitic infections and help prevent unnecessary treatment with medications that could create parasite resistances and keep the environment clean of parasites.

If my dog’s urine test reveals a urinary tract infection, what can I do?

If your dog has a urinary tract infection following the treatment plan, complete all medications prescribed by the Veterinarian and providing a follow-up urinalysis appointment if required should return your dog to its normal healthy life.
