In House Laboratory
Because we are committed to the timely diagnosis of your pet’s medical conditions, the Kenai Veterinary Hospital is equipped with an extensive in-house laboratory. We have the capability to do complete red and white blood cell counts and clotting tests in minutes. Our blood chemistry equipment can determine almost two dozen parameters from blood sugar to blood gases that enable us to assess your pet’s internal organ function rapidly. Results are instantly transferred into the patient’s medical record. From centrifugal fecal flotations and urinalyses to parvo testing, we have the capability to quickly diagnose most of the common maladies that affect our local pet population.
With our ECG recorder, we can monitor a patient’s cardiac function during surgery or make tracings of their heart rhythms to transmit to heart specialists for the optimum care of your pet.
Our Sedecal direct digital radiography system allows us to quickly get vital diagnostic images to speed the diagnosis of your pet’s medical condition. We can easily transfer the images to board certified radiologists and surgeons for second opinions and referrals.
All of our veterinarians are all taking continued eductaion courses in order to better utilize our new high quality GE ultrasound machine.
