Desert Dog Panel - Valley Fever, Tick Disease, CBC/Chemistries/Heartworm
Because desert dogs are special.
Dogs lucky enough to live in Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, and Utah enjoy gorgeous sunsets, long hikes, and year round sunshine. Unfortunately, these ideal conditions are also perfect breeding grounds for several infectious organisms and ticks that can cause serious diseases in humans and dogs. To make sure your trail hound stays healthy, we created our special Desert Dog Disease Tracker diagnostic blood test panel.
Tests to detect common desert diseases including Valley Fever and Tick-borne illnesses.
The Desert Dog Profile includes a complete health assessment blood panel along with Valley Fever and tick-borne diseases Anaplasma, Lyme, and Ehrlichia.
