Testing and Miscellaneous Service
Recommendations and Fees

Dogs:

Heartworm testing: All dogs over 6 months of age who are not on heartworm preventive should be tested for heartworms. Dogs under 6 months can be started on heartworm preventive without prior testing. Competitively priced heartworm preventive is available for sale at the PPAW Clinic, or by mail order at 1-877-927-7729. However, you must be able to show proof of the results of a negative result heartworm test performed within the last year, or have a prescription written by a veterinarian. We recommend heartworm preventive be administered year round, since Tennessee ranks 10th nationally in the number of reported heartworm incidents. If your dog tests positive for heartworms, we recommend scheduling a visit with a full-service veterinarian to obtain the proper medication for treatment of the heartworm infestation.

Cats:

The PPAW Clinic does not require Feline Leukemia testing to vaccinate for that disease. However, we highly recommend testing PRIOR TO vaccination for the simple reason that if your cat is already infected with the virus, the Feline Leukemia vaccination with neither help, nor hurt your cat. Additionally, vaccination without testing may put other household cats at risk of infection. The blood test used by the PPAW Clinic tests for Feline Leukemia, FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus) and feline heartworm. At this time the PPAW Clinic does not sell feline heartworm preventive, however, in the unlikely event that your cat should test positive for feline heartworms, we recommend scheduling a visit with a full-service veterinarian to discuss treatment options.

Kittens and Puppies:

We recommend that puppies and kittens have fecal examinations and be de-wormed according to any parasites found in said examination. Fecal examinations are available at full-service veterinary clinics, but some low cost worming medication is available for purchase at the PPAW Clinic.
