Thank you all so much for your understanding and patience these past years with the changes we had to institute due to the pandemic. We all know just how unprecedented it was, and we appreciate your cooperation in helping us continue to provide care for your beloved pet while keeping our team healthy.

We are excited for yet another change!

Beginning Monday, April 4, 2022, we will no longer limit the number of family members present for examinations. We will also be allowing clients into the building for technician appointments. Due to the small size of the lobby, we still ask that you call from your car upon arrival and provide a history over the phone so we can limit traffic in the building. We have found that the decreased noise in the lobby has seemed to really relax many of your pets. We will gladly escort you into an exam room when it is ready.

For our day admission appointments and surgical patients, we will remain curbside only due to the limited space in the hospital.

If you do not wish to come into the office for your pet’s appointment or simply enjoy the convenience of curbside, we are pleased to continue to offer this as an option.
A mask will not be required in accordance with our county’s guidelines. You may see some of our staff continue to wear them. If you would feel more comfortable if our team members wear a mask during your interaction, we will happily do so.

The lobby will also be open for prescription medication and food pick-ups. Again, if you would prefer to have these brought to your car, please just call in when you are here and ask!

We look forward to seeing you and your pet!

Pet Diagnostics

At Northfield Veterinary Hospital, our veterinarians use our in-house lab and digital X-rays,  to diagnose and treat diseases. Learn more below!

Northfield Veterinary Hospital

Veterinary diagnostics are some of the most important tools we use in veterinary medicine. They help us detect disease before there are physical symptoms. This allows us to treat your pet more effectively (and more affordably too) before the disease has time to progress.
BLOODWORK IN OUR IN-HOUSE LAB

Lab work is incredibly important in Veterinary Medicine. It helps us assess your pet’s internal health, including the functioning of organs. We often run blood work at your pet’s annual exam to maintain a complete medical history for them as well as establish their baseline health. Regular blood work also helps us in early detection of disease.

Common tests we run with our in-house lab include:

  • Complete blood count (CBCs)
  • Blood chemistry panels
  • Fecal tests
  • Skin scrapings
  • Heartworm test
  • Tick-borne illness screening
  • Feline leukemia and feline immunodeficiency virus test

DIGITAL X-RAYS FOR DOGS & CATS

X-rays help us visualize your pet’s skeletal structure and abdomen. Unlike film X-rays, digital X-rays expose your pet to far less radiation and tend to take less time to produce. Plus, the image is crystal clear and in a digital format that we can easily share with you, or a specialist for a second opinion.

Digital X-ray is ideal for diagnosing:

  • Fractures
  • Injured or inflamed joints
  • Obstructions in the gastrointestinal tract
  • Heart and lung disease
  • Bone deformities
  • And more
