Testing For Illness
Sometimes, there’s cause for concern that your pet may be suffering from a condition that’s not outright discernable in a routine examination. In many cases, we’ll be able to pick up on symptoms and recommend additional testing to get to the root of a problem. Some common tests include:

This allows the veterinarian to check for the presence of internal parasites such as hookworms, roundworms and whipworms.
