Test for Leishmania and 6 other vector-borne pathogens


Leishmaniosis is a parasitic disease transmitted by infected sand flies in parts of the tropics, subtropics, and southern Europe. Unfortunately, dogs serve as primary reservoirs of infection, contributing to the spread of this zoonotic disease. Once infected, dogs and humans alike must manage the infection for a lifetime. Therefore, testing for Leishmania infections is essential to the well-being of both animals and humans.


Heartworm disease has been found in dogs worldwide. While heartworm is both treatable and preventable, it is a serious and deadly disease that may show no clinical signs in its early stage. Screen annually to find even low worm-burden patients sooner and more often, and begin treatment when you can do the most good.


Detection of antibodies to Ehrlichia canis, Ehrlichia ewingii, and Ehrlichia chaffeensis indicates tick exposure and the transmission of infectious agents. Additional testing is recommended in these patients to determine if there is an active infection. Controlling the infection early is the best way to protect your patients from chronic disease.


Annually screen dogs to identify Anaplasma phagocytophilum and Anaplasma platys infectionsEarly detection improves patient prognosis and reinforces the importance of tick control.
