Cat Leukemia and Aids Testing

Cat Leukemia and AIDS Testing is important because it helps identify two serious viral infections: feline leukemia virus (FeLV) and feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV). Detecting these viruses early allows for timely intervention and management, which can help prevent further complications and improve your cat’s quality of life. Regular testing is essential for maintaining your cat’s health and preventing the spread of infection.

Our experienced team uses advanced testing methods to provide accurate and timely results, allowing for prompt intervention if needed.

Our Cat Leukemia and AIDS Testing Services Include:

  • FeLV and FIV Blood Tests: These tests detect the presence of FeLV and FIV antibodies in your cat’s blood, indicating whether they have been exposed to these viruses.
  • Consultation and Counseling: If FeLV and FIV infections are detected, our veterinarians will discuss the test results with you and provide guidance on managing them.

Benefits of Cat Leukemia and AIDS Testing:

  • Early detection of FeLV and FIV
  • Prompt intervention and treatment, if needed
  • Prevention of transmission to other cats
  • Peace of mind for cat owners

Heartworm Testing for Dogs

Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal condition caused by parasitic worms that live in the heart, lungs, and blood vessels of infected dogs. It is transmitted through the bite of an infected mosquito.

Why is Heartworm Testing Important?

Early detection of heartworm disease is crucial for ensuring your dog’s health and well-being. If left untreated, heartworm disease can cause severe damage to your dog’s heart, lungs, and other organs, leading to serious health problems and even death.

Our Heartworm Testing Services Include:

  • Antigen Test: This blood test detects the presence of adult female heartworms in your dog’s bloodstream, indicating an active infection.
  • Consultation and Counseling: Our veterinarians will discuss the test results with you and provide guidance on preventing or treating heartworm disease in your dog.
