Heartworm and fecal testing are important for your pet’s well-being. At West Hills Veterinary Centre, our in-house fecal testing takes only 10 minutes and helps us detect hookworms, roundworms, whipworms and tapeworms. Fecal tests can also check for giardia and coccydia, which causes diarrhea. To ensure the best possible results, we ask that you bring a fresh fecal sample.
For heartworm testing, we do a 40x test which checks for heartworms and tick-borne diseases that are prevalent in the area—the most common diseases include licchya and lyme disease. We offer a send-out test, as well as a young-wellness version for pets under seven and a senior version for those over seven. In addition to this, we also test for internal organ functions.
