• Thank you for choosing Hidden Valley Animal Clinic to care for your pet(s)! Before coming in for your visit, we would like to go over some information with you. Please review and answer the following questions.

    1. 4DX Test

    • We recommend all dogs be tested yearly for lyme disease due to the high prevalence of this disease seen in Pennsylvania. As of 2021, the lyme prevalence in Washington and Allegheny county is around 13% (13 out of 100 tested dogs are lyme positive). The lyme test also looks for other less prevalent diseases, such as heartworm disease, anapalsma, and ehrlichia.

    • Currently, lyme disease is not believed to affect cats. Because of this, we do not recommend testings cats for lyme disease.

  • 2. General Bloodwork

    • As our pets age, it is important to monitor their health both on the outside and inside. While a good physical examination can reveal many potential problems, some diseases (such as early kidney or thyroid disease) can be detected much earlier through bloodwork. When caught early, we can better help manage these diseases to help provide for better, longer care of your pet. Because of this, having yearly bloodwork performed is recommended, especially in older pets (over 7 years of age).

  • 5. We encourage you to download the PetPro Connect App. This app allows you to see which vaccines your pet(s) are due for and which medications they are currently on.
