How Much Does a Dog Urinalysis Cost?

A urinalysis is a process of performing a physical, chemical, and microscopic analysis of the dog’s urine.  This test can be used to reveal several diseases that may have gone unnoticed because they do not produce any signs or symptoms.  Dogs may also undergo a urinalysis for help when evaluating certain illnesses.  In general, the results will show if bacteria is present.

 Dogs that exhibit abnormal urine frequency, production, or urination that causes pain or contains traces of blood are usually a candidate for a urinalysis.

How much did you spend?

Was it worth it?  

  1. KO (Newark,  Delaware) paid $87 and said:

    Needed immediate results to start antibiotics, so urine was tested in vet’s office. If urine was sent out to lab for analysis, testing would have cost less but results would not have been available for another two days due to holiday. Suspected a urinary tract infection so dog needed antibiotics asap-could not afford to wait or misdiagnose.

    Was it worth it? Yes

  2. Lena (Westfield,  Indiana) paid $85 and said:

    Test was done at my vet’s to diagnose a urinary tract infection. It was worth it to get a quick diagnosis but overall this is quite expensive for this area.

    Was it worth it? Yes

  3. Patricia Curran (Antioch,  California) paid $97 and said:

    $96.50 was the cost of the urinalysis, as part of a yearly visit, etc. Anything I do to take care of my pets is worth it. The total bill for the 2 little dogs was $1,114.50…. and they weren’t even sick. That included Heartgard and some very expensive once-a-month pills for flea and tick control.3/24/17

    Was it worth it? Yes
