Our hospital provides a wide variety of in-house diagnostic testing with the most state of the art technology available. These diagnostic tools help us diagnose pets with conditions or illness that we cannot detect with just a physical examination. It is our goal to provide your pet with the highest level of care possible and our diagnostic tools help us do that. Some of the diagnostic tools that we offer include but are not limited to:

  • Digital radiology
    • Radiography is an important diagnostic tool that helps us detect many different conditions and illnesses in small animals such as broken bones, obstruction, bladder stones, counting puppies, and more!
  • Ultrasonography
    • Ultrasonography is another extremely important diagnostic tool. Ultrasound can help us detect things that we cannot always see well in a radiograph. We can visualize and get more detailed views of organs in several different cavities of the body. In the abdomen we can better assess the liver, biliary system, stomach, intestines, colon, kidneys, adrenal glands, urinary bladder, reproductive organs, and lymph nodes. We can even confirm changes in the uterus such as pregnancy or inflammation. In the chest cavity we can better assess the heart and lungs. Along with organs, we can utilize the ultrasound to detect disease of the muscles, joints and soft tissues structures like masses, thyroid, parathyroid, and others.
    • Dr. Krell offers in depth ultrasounds on both the chest and abdominal cavities for consultation. We do accept referrals for these types of consultations. (Please contact the clinic to schedule.) 
  • Blood analyzers
    • Blood machines help us detect internal issues within the organs and blood systems. We are able to run complete blood counts, various chemistry panels, screen for tick borne illness, heartworm disease, parvovirus, pancreatitis, and more.
  • Urine analyzer
    • Our urine analyzer machine can help detect many issues within the urinary system. We utilize this machine most commonly to screen for urinary tract infections and urinary crystals.
  • Video otoscopy
    • We can use our video otoscope to visualize smaller areas that we might not be able to see otherwise – such as tissue abnormalities or growths within the ears or other similar structures.
