MiDOG®'s New, NGS-based Microbial and Antibiotic Resistance Test for UTIs

Canine Urinary Pathogen Test

MiDOG® offers next-generation DNA sequencing-based microbial diagnostic tests to veterinarians for companion animals. To complement the MiDOG® All-in-One Swab Test Kit for skin, ear, and GI infections, MiDOG®  now offers its new All-in-One Urine Test Kit for the identification and quantification of all bacteria, fungi and antibiotic resistance in urine samples.

The urine sample can be obtained either by cystocentesis or free-catch methods from any type of animal. In addition to a sample’s microbial profile, the MiDOG testing service report includes antibiotic resistances to assist veterinarians with good stewardship in targeted treatments. Urinary tract infections in companion animals are very common, often resulting from anaerobic bacteria, such as Mycoplasma canis or Proteus mirabilis, both easily missed by traditional culture testing.
