At Prairie Animal Hospital, we offer a full list of animal diagnostic services.
As part of our diagnostic processes, we listen to the lungs and the heart for any abnormal sounds, heart rhythm, and heart rate.
We check the abdomen for masses, fluid buildup, or the presence of pain.
We feel for enlargement of the lymph nodes and thyroid glands.
We will check your animal’s teeth for tarter buildup as well as signs of disease.
At the same time, we check the mouth for any masses or inflammation that could be signs of other issues.
The ears are checked for infection, as well as the eyes for any abnormalities.
We will examine your pets skin and coat for signs of parasites, infection, lumps, masses, or discolorations. We will check your pet’s musculoskeletal system for signs of swelling or lameness. We also will observe your pet for changes in the mental or nervous system.
Veterinary Diagnostics Available
The Veterinarians and veterinary Team members here at Prairie Animal Hospital trust and love our diagnostic in-house Laboratory from Idexx. Idexx offers a comprehensive chemistry profile with amylase and lipase, making it ideal for canine and feline patients.
We can combine a CBC, electrolytes, chemistries and tests such as total T4, when indicated.
We can do this in about 20-30 minutes while you wait. No more waiting for veterinary tests overnight for most labs.
With Idexx and its full software integration we can e-mail you results quickly and we have access to a Pet Health Network.
You can look up any questions that you may have about veterinary diagnostics.
Other diagnostic services include digital x-ray and ultrasound capabilities. Digital dental x-rays will be coming soon to further our ability to remove and treat dental disease in dogs and cats.
This is by far the best animal hospital I have ever seen. I have two cats and they have been to many vet's before I took them here. Everyone here is very nice, and one of my cats, who is very jumpy around new things, sat calmly during her exam and didn't try jumping on everything in the room.
The staff is super welcoming! Dr. Rachel is also very personable, which makes everything feel more comfortable.
Dr. Kuhn and the rest of the PAH team are absolutely astounding. Had to have my cairn terrier boarded for a couple days on very short notice and they took amazing care of her. Would recommend to anyone.
SO impressed. The doctor and staff went out of their way to make my big dog (who has social issues) feel comfortable. They were caring, compassionate, knowledgeable, and prompt. I couldn't ask for better. We have to drive a bit to get to the facility, but it is well worth it. HIGHLY recommend!!
