Advanced Pet Diagnostics

Many illnesses and injuries that our pets can suffer from cannot be detected on the surface of the skin. Veterinary diagnostics are invaluable tools that allow us to delve deeper — below the surface to learn exactly what’s happening inside your pet’s body so that an accurate diagnosis can be reached and an appropriate treatment plan put in place. Heartland Animal Hospital, Owatonna utilizes a broad range of diagnostic services to manage the ongoing health of our patients.


Our in-house laboratory includes the most up-to-date equipment available for fast and accurate retrieval of diagnostic test results. Our staff is trained to perform various tests, including blood organ profiles, complete cell counts, urinalysis, fecal analysis, blood smears,  and other common diagnostic procedures. For our fecal testing we utilize a consulting laboratory to ensure that it is fully analyzed. We also utilize the services of a veterinary reference laboratory for advanced diagnostics and uncommon disease identification. This allows us to quickly and accurately diagnose medical and emergency conditions affecting your pet.
