Dog Urinalysis and Fecal Exam

Both fecal analysis and urinalysis are essential tools in diagnosing various infections, parasites, and diseases. For some appointments, our client care specialists may ask you to bring in a fecal and/or urine sample. They will provide you with detailed instructions on the collection, storage, and appropriate time frame for drop off.

Why are canine fecal examinations recommended yearly?

Proactive prevention is the best option. Regular fecal examinations paired with year-round parasite prevention ensures that your pet is well protected.

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

Your vet will always discuss the best treatment option. Treatment may include a course of antibiotics, pain medications/anti-inflammatories and possibly dietary changes.


Black History & Veterinary Medicine - Dr. Alfreda Johnson Webb (1923-1992)

Today's medical historian of colour is Dr. Alfreda Johnson Webb. Dr. Webb graduated with her DVM with our previous blog star Dr. Hinton, as one of the first female African American veterinarians in the US. Both of these great women were also the first black members of the Women’s Veterinary Medicine Association. She also founded the School of Veterinary Medicine of North Carolina State University. In 1971, she became the first African American woman in the North Carolina General Assembly, serving on many committees including serving as the Chairperson of Minority Affairs, president of the Democratic Women of NC, and a member of the NC Council on Sickle Cell Syndrome.   So you can see despite so many obstacles Dr. Webb was still able to make history and so can we!   Written by: Ashley G, VT   Resources:
