Figuring out the root cause of your canine and feline patients’ GI issues can be a long and complex process. Common GI symptoms have a number of possible causes, and multiple tests usually need to be issued, including blood, fecal and urine tests, along with abdominal ultrasounds, to really understand what’s going on.

This process can take months, leaving the patient in GI distress for longer than necessary.


Diseases such as IBD, pancreatitis, PLE, LSA, and SIBO may exist concurrently, so no one test can do it all. This means diagnostic tests are often done by several different laboratories, leaving vets with a lot of information that takes time to connect the dots.

Why not simplify the GI diagnostic process and use the top system that connects the dots for you?

VDI Lab’s Advanced GI Panel is the best solution for identifying the exact cause of a patient’s GI distress. This is done by bringing together common diagnostic tests and combining them with VDI’s specialty diagnostics into a single blood panel for diagnosing the patient with GI signs.

The panel uses a single blood test and artificial intelligence that utilizes pattern recognition to quickly provide the right diagnosis for your patients’ GI symptoms. The Advanced GI Panel is also cost-effective, non-invasive, and useful for the initial workup and for therapeutic monitoring, making it a leader in GI diagnostics.

With VDI Lab’s Advanced GI Panel, you can get insights on:

  • Lymphoma vs. IBD
  • Pancreatitis
  • Protein losing enteropathy
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Malabsorption and SIBO

Along with the proper diagnosis, you also get context aware interpretation, a clinical case review, patient-specific dosing guidelines for vitamin deficiencies, and repeat tests for equivocal results.
