In-House Diagnostic Testing for Cats & Dogs
Ingersoll Veterinary Services has an in-house lab that helps us pinpoint the precise cause of your cat and dog's symptoms so that we can provide a diagnosis as quickly as possible.
Our trained veterinary technicians perform various diagnostic testing such as blood work, radiology, ultrasound, and urinalysis.
With our diagnostic imaging capabilities, we can efficiently produce accurate information about your pet's condition and provide treatment options.
On-Site Veterinary Pharmacy
Once we diagnose your dog or cat's condition, your veterinarian can prescribe and supply the medications to help resolve or manage their issue.
When it's time to renew your furry friend's prescription, let us know 24 hours prior and we will prepare your pets medication and notify you when it is ready.
You also have the option to choose our prescription refill service, enabling you to conveniently request a refill.

Our Diagnostic Services
- Radiography (Digital X-Rays)
Radiography is safe, painless and non-invasive. It uses only very low doses of radiation. Because the level of radiation exposure required to perform radiography is very low, even pregnant females and very young cats and dogs can undergo this procedure.
With ultrasound imaging, we expose part of the body to high-frequency sound waves to produce images of the inside of the body. Because we capture ultrasound images in real-time, we can see the structure and movement of your pet's internal organs, as well as blood flowing through the blood vessels.
- ECG / EKG
If your veterinarian performs a physical examination and suspects your furry friend may have a heart disorder, we usually take chest X-Rays and an electrocardiogram (ECG / EKG).
This procedure can be completed easily and quickly. It reveals data that may be integral to your friend;'s diagnosis. In other cases, a cardiac ultrasound may be required to identify disorders in the chambers of the heart.
We run a number of common and targeted blood tests to help us determine the health of your cat and dog and to diagnose illness.
Some of the most common veterinary blood tests we do are CBC (complete blood count), white blood count, hemoglobin and MCHC (mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration), hematocrit, platelets, eosinophils, and blood serum profile.
Urinalysis is a key diagnostic test that provides your veterinarian with essential insights into the physical and chemical properties of your friend's urine.
Urinalysis is primarily used to assess the health of your animal's kidneys and urinary tract system, but it can also be helpful in detecting issues in other organ systems and is important for diagnosing metabolic diseases such as diabetes.
- Fecal Exams
A fecal exam is the microscopic examination of your furry friend's feces, which can be done at our in-house veterinary lab in Ingersoll.
The ultimate goal of a fecal exam is to identify and treat any GI infections that could be compromising your pet's health and even the health of your family. Fecal exams allow your veterinarian to determine if your pet has intestinal parasites such as roundworms or hookworms.
