Sondel Family Veterinary Clinic
In veterinary medicine, laboratory testing is a crucial diagnostic tool. We are delighted to offer in-house urinalysis in order to provide the finest care possible for our patients.
At Sondel Family Veterinary Clinic, blood testing cannot give us information that urine testing, which includes urinalysis and urine culture, can. It’s important to keep in mind that many animals experience early protein (albumin) loss through the kidneys, which may be seen in a urinalysis but is not visible in a blood profile. Excessive protein loss in the urine is frequent in dogs and needs to be treated right once to avoid more serious issues. When an infection is suspected, a urine culture is also necessary for us to identify and manage this typical pet condition.
Your veterinarian can identify any unexpected substances in the urine, like as protein, sugar, or blood, by performing urine testing. Additionally, it can help with the diagnosis of a number of illnesses, including diabetes, urinary tract infections, dehydration, and renal issues.
