Our Laboratory Services

We perform many veterinary diagnostic tests right here in our in-clinic laboratory. Even if your pet appears healthy on the outside, the results of a blood test, fecal exam, or urinalysis can help us detect the early stages of an illness or disease before your pet starts feeling sick. For tests we cannot perform in-house, we rely on outside diagnostic laboratories that are staffed by veterinary experts. Below is a list of the most common tests we perform in our laboratory.

Digital Pet X-Rays

La Crosse Veterinary Clinic uses digital radiography (X-rays) to examine your pet’s bones and soft tissues safely and painlessly. Digital radiographs can also be used to identify foreign bodies. This diagnostic tool provides a number of benefits, both for your pet and for our veterinarians. With our X-ray unit, we can produce images within seconds and share them digitally if necessary. The quality of the images is very clear and detailed, which helps us better examine your pet by zooming in or changing the color or contrast in specific areas of the image.

Pet Ultrasound

Ultrasound involves examining the body’s internal structures by recording the echoes of ultrasonic waves. In collaboration with Dr. Rita Miller, one of our board-certified referring veterinarians, we offer ultrasound technology to examine your pet’s internal organs. We use the Doppler ultrasound technique, which also evaluates blood flow. This technique is safe, painless, and effective for examining your pet.
