Dog Urinalysis and Fecal Exam

A fecal and urine exam is important to detect intestinal worms, which live in an environment where your dog can pick them up, and urinary tract infections. Fecal exams are recommended yearly because of the prolonged exposure to parasites during the warm season and are essential even for dogs.

Why are canine fecal examinations recommended yearly?

Intestinal parasites have the potential to cause disease in dogs, and some of them can even be transmitted to people. Due to this, it is important to make sure your dog is intestinal parasite free. Even if you are on monthly deworming, it is still essential to do a fecal test to be sure.

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

A veterinarian will discuss all of the treatment options with you and come up with a treatment plan that works best for your dog.
