Alexandria Animal Hospital is excited to announce the capability to screen your dog for 6 different vector-borne diseases with one small sample of blood. We have traditionally tested all dogs annually for heartworm disease, which is transmitted by mosquitoes. Now, with that same small blood sample, we can screen for 5 different tick-borne diseases as well. For more information on these diseases, click here. Feel free to ask us about whether your dog may be a candidate for this test at your next visit!
