Urinalysis is an important diagnostic tool for many diseases. Urine testing is typically the first step in diagnosing a simple urinary tract infection to more complicated systemic illnesses, such as diabetes, kidney disease, and Cushing’s disease. Fecal analysis (or poop analysis) is an important tool for detecting intestinal parasites in dogs. Intestinal parasites can cause poor health in dogs and are a major cause of diarrhea, abdominal pain, and vomiting.
We recommend routine fecal examinations because parasites are contagious to all ages and sizes of dogs. Dog to dog contact is not required to spread most parasites. Routine fecal checks allow us to make sure your pet is intestinal parasite free!
If my dog’s urine test reveals a urinary tract infection, what can I do?
Once your dog has been examined and a urinalysis has been done, medications can be dispensed for the urinary tract infection. The medications prescribed are dependent on the results of the urinalysis and sometimes a diet change is recommended if there are concurrent issues (such as crystals in the urine or bladder stones). Your dog’s specific needs will be addressed based on the findings of the urinalysis and the physical exam done by a veterinarian.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 19, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. OPERATING HOURS
We are OPEN with the following hours: Monday, Tuesday and Thursday: 8 am - 6 pm Wednesday: 8 am - 7 pm Friday: 8 am - 4 pm Saturday & Sunday: Closed
