Fecal tests and urinalysis can be important laboratory diagnostic services that can play important roles in maintaining your pet’s health. A urinalysis is a great diagnostic tool in determining a possible urinary tract infection as well as help indicate other health issues. Fecal tests are an important part of determining the gastroenteric health of your pet. At the Airdrie Animal Health Centre, we possess many of the laboratory equipment necessary to provide a diagnosis in-clinic with the ability to send samples to a laboratory for further testing.
Testing of your pet’s feces is a useful tool in understanding the gastrointestinal health of your pet. Often when pets are having digestive tract issues, fecal examinations provide us with enough information to help make a diagnosis and effectively treat your pet.
If my dog’s urine test reveals a urinary tract infection, what can I do?
By completing a urinalysis, our team of veterinary experts can determine if your dog has a urinary tract infection. Upon diagnosis, our doctors can recommend treatment options to therapeutically treat the urinary tract infection and get your dog back to full health.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 25, 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. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
