Using a single test, your veterinarian can check for any of the following diseases: heartworm disease, Lyme disease, ehrlichiosis, and anaplasmosis. All of these diseases are transmitted by parasites. Heartworm disease is spread by mosquitoes; Lyme disease, ehrlichiosis, and anaplasmosis are carried by ticks. If your pet spends time outside, they are at risk of contracting any of these diseases. Even if you think your back yard is safe, your pet could still contract a parasitic disease.
Testing takes only a few minutes and requires only a small sample of your dog’s blood. Sometimes, follow-up testing is recommended. This may involve sending a blood sample to a laboratory for further analysis.
