Dog Urinalysis and Fecal Exam

Urinalysis can be a useful diagnostic tool. We can tell whether there is a urinary tract infection or the presence of crystals/bladder stones by analyzing your dog’s urine. Urinalysis can also help us determine kidney function and glucose levels.

Why are canine fecal examinations recommended yearly?


Fecal examinations are recommended on a case-by-case basis. We recommend deworming your pet at least 3-4 times a year (and monthly in the summer). This will prevent any possible complications from intestinal parasites.

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


Our veterinarians will prescribe suitable antibiotics for a urinary tract infection. We suggest that your pet finish the full course of antibiotics to prevent reoccurring infections, even if symptoms improve.
