4DX Testing – What is it? Why do I need to test my dog?

Commonly known as Heartworm Test, the 4DX test is actually testing for four different diseases.  It tests for heartworm, which is carried and transmitted by mosquitoes; lyme, ehrlichia, and anaplasmosis that are all carried and transmitted by ticks.

We strongly recommend testing every year even if your dog is on heartworm preventative year round.  This way we can test for the tick borne diseases and be sure that your dog is heartworm free.
