Important Information On 4DX Testing
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Local Veterinary Clinics Implement Routine Tick Borne Disease Screening
Clinton Township, MI – March 24, 2016- Parkway Small Animal and Exotic Hospital announced that it will begin routine testing for tick borne diseases starting April 1, 2016. This is in response to the rising number of tick borne disease cases (Lyme disease, anaplasmosis, and ehrlichiosis) reported by IDEXX Laboratories each year in Oakland and Macomb counties. As of October 2015, prevalence data reported by www.dogsandticks.com showed more positive tick borne diseases then heartworm positives in Michigan.
Lyme disease and other tick borne diseases can cause mild clinical signs initially (fever, fatigue, skin rash) in people and pets, however when left untreated, can progress to long term auto-immune disease and/or irreparable damage to vital internal organs. The goal of screening for these diseases is to diagnose early and start treatment before damage occurs. Retriever breeds seem to be more susceptible to kidney problems associated with Lyme disease.
Year round tick prevention combined with annual Lyme vaccination is the best way to protect your pet and is the new standard of care at Parkway Small Animal & Exotic Hospital.
