Veterinary Diagnostics in New Glarus & Oregon, WI

Our veterinary diagnostics include an in-house lab, digital X-rays, and ultrasound. These tools play a vital role in the care we give to your pets. Since pets can’t tell us how they’re feeling, we use lab work, X-rays and ultrasound to give them a voice. They help us with determining your pet’s baseline health as well as early detection for disease.

Our In-House Lab

Our in-house lab enables us to run baseline diagnostics as well as disease screenings. By understanding your pet’s baseline blood work, we can better detect abnormalities. Additionally, disease screenings help us with early detection, so we can treat your pet sooner before their condition worsens.

Tests we run include:

  • Complete blood counts
  • Blood chemistry panels
  • Heartworm testing
  • Fecal tests
  • Cytology (skin testing)
  • Tick-borne disease testing
  • Urinalysis
  • And more

Digital X-Rays

X-rays give a clear view of your pet’s skeletal structure and their abdominal cavity. We use radiographs frequently for suspected fractures, ingested foreign bodies, issues regarding gait, and more. Digital X-rays are far superior to their film predecessors in several ways, including:

  • Developing clearer images with a higher contrast
  • Using significantly less radiation
  • Taking far less time to take the image
  • The ability to save the image as a digital file and send it to specialists if needed

Ultrasound

Using sound waves, ultrasound creates a live image of your pet’s internal organs and cavities. We use ultrasound for a more detailed look at organs and how they’re functioning. It can also help us detect the direction and velocity of blood flow, which is particularly useful when viewing the heart. We use ultrasound for the following:

  • Detecting pregnancies
  • Evaluating organs
  • Assessing the abdominal cavity
  • Cysts and tumors
  • And more

Ultrasound is a valuable tool in veterinary medicine and we’re proud to offer this service at both our locations, so you don’t have to worry about being referred out for ultrasonography.
