Concerned about Lyme disease?

By March 20, 2015 February 25th, 2016 Clinic news

Heartworm season is just around the corner and this year Scott Veterinary Clinic is offering a new type of heartworm test called the Idexx 4DX Plus.

As well as testing for heartworm, this test will also identify five tick borne diseases including Lyme disease, two types of Anaplasma and two types of Ehrlichia.

These diseases can cause a variety of clinical signs including fever, arthritis, kidney failure, anemia and bleeding disorders. The scary thing about these is that they are zoonotic which means they can also cause disease in humans. The good news is we can run the test during the appointment so you will have the results before you go home.

With the rising number of ticks in our area, we thought this was a great value added test for you!
