Dog Urinalysis and Fecal Exam

Urinalysis and fecal tests are a good first marker when trying to detect any hidden illness in your dog. It is also very cost-effective to start with this first with the patient.

Why are canine fecal examinations recommended yearly?

Fecal tests are done regularly to check for internal parasites and can cause severe sickness in dogs if not caught early. Many internal parasites are also transmissible to humans, making it even more important to detect.

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

At home, taking your dog out more periodically for urinations and offering a large amount of water can help with infections. A recheck is needed after the antibiotics are finished to see if there has been an improvement.
