Canine Heartworm Testing: Standard annual canine heartworm testing has been replaced with a more comprehensive 4dx test that includes the four major vector-borne diseases we see in this area. This test checks for Heartworm, Lyme disease, Ehrlichia, and Anaplasmosis. These diseases are passed by the bites of ticks, fleas and mosquitoes, and some are contagious to people. A heartworm test is required annually to prescribe heartworm prevention.
Feline Heartworm Testing: Feline heartworm testing is now included in our feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency (AIDS) testing. Approximately 5% of the cat population is infected with one of these diseases.
