Dog Urinalysis and Fecal Exam

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.

Why are canine fecal examinations recommended?

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.

Dear valued clients,

Given the current state of the pandemic in Alberta, we have made the decision to return to a closed-door protocol in an effort to do our best to help control the spread of COVID-19. The health and safety of you and all our staff is our top priority so that we can continue to offer your pets the care they deserve. We ask for your patience and understanding while we navigate these challenging times together.

When you arrive for your appointment, please give us a call from your vehicle. We will ask a few questions before we start the appointment and ensure we have all of your information. We will then meet you and your pet at the door. For all appointments, we ask that you wait in your vehicle in the parking lot while your pet is being examined. The doctor will give you a call once your pet is in the clinic so we ask that you have your cell phone on at all times so there are no delays.

If you are picking up food or medication, give us a call and we will put your order in the bins outside the front Dog Entrance. Please note that you can purchase your food through our online store. Just head over to our website https://www.airdrievets.com/ and choose the online store tab at the top.

Thank you for your cooperation and for helping us all stay healthy. Please be considerate of our staff. We ask only for courtesy and kindness when working with our team as they continue to work tirelessly to provide the best level of care for your pet during these trying times.

Thank you for your continued trust in us.
