Advanced Veterinary Diagnostic Technology

Mountain Mobile Veterinary Hospital comes fully equipped with advanced diagnostic equipment and technology. Dr. Felz has invested in the latest medical diagnostic and software applications, and the only difference between Mountain Mobile and a stationary clinic is that we conveniently bring our veterinary services right to your door.

We make personal house calls to deliver high quality medical care to Missoula pets, and our commitment to providing excellent care includes the use of an in-house laboratory service. Lab tests are a non-invasive method of uncovering vital information about your pet’s health. We understand how stressful it can be when your pet is sick—conducting diagnostic tests in our mobile lab gives us same-day results, which can have a significant impact on identifying the cause of disease and arranging a treatment plan for your pet in a timely fashion.

Mountain Mobile offers a variety of diagnostic tests:

  • Blood tests—Complete Blood Count (CBC), Full serum chemistry screening to evaluate internal organ health, hormone screening, and drug level testing for certain medications. Routine blood tests are especially important prior to surgery and anesthesia, as well as identifying health concerns early in our geriatric patients.
  • Heartworm test—Heartworms are a serious infectious disease that are spread by mosquitos and results in worms inside your pets’ heart. It is becoming more prevalent in Montana, and the American Heartworm Society recommends that all pets should be tested annually and placed on monthly heartworm preventative. Heartworm testing and prevention is especially important for folks traveling with their pets out of state.
  • Fecal testing—routine fecal testing can confirm the presence of gastrointestinal parasites such as worms, coccidia, and giardia. Routine testing and deworming of pets is important as most internal parasites are transmissible to people, especially children and the elderly.
  • Urinalysis—routine fecal testing can confirm the presence of gastrointestinal parasites such as worms, coccidia, and giardia. Routine testing and deworming of pets is important as most internal parasites are transmissible to people, especially children and the elderly.
  • Cytology—Dr. Felz provides complete and extensive cytological evaluation of lumps. Masses, and growths. It is very important to any abnormal growths evaluated to rule out cancer.

We provide advanced digital x-ray and ultrasound services, and we also direct specimens to outside labs for specialized testing if necessary.
