Diagnostics Treatment for Dogs and Cats in Montgomery, MN
It takes more than a physical exam for us to truly understand your pet’s overall health. We need to look deeper to not only make sure they’re healthy, but also check for any abnormal, underlying problems. Illnesses always start out subtle and the sooner they’re detected, the more quickly we can bring them to heel with treatment. Our diagnostic tools make it easier for us to detect problems at an earlier stage in dogs and cats and thus provide them with the best and most complete care possible.
Thank you Dr. Sweers for the incredible care you give my fur babies.
You have also taken care of me in those hysterical moments when I am worried about them. Your kindness and compassion is above and beyond along with the great medical care.

Went to see the clinic today! It looks awesome!
I got to meet the doc and most of his staff. They all seem really caring and understanding. I'm excited to have a good vet so close.

What a great vet!!
I took my foster dogs there to be spayed and was totally impressed. Everyone was so friendly and the dr. was excellent! Totally recommend!!

Top notch vet!
We have been taking our kitty Jasper to Dr. Ben all of his 7 years, and his wife Julie has been our groomer as well. They provide top notch service and go above and beyond the call of duty to accommodate their customers.

Our Diagnostic Services
To thoroughly assess the health of dogs and cats and screen for disease, we offer the following services.
Our in-house lab is a vital part of our practice. Here, we can perform a variety of blood, fecal, and urine tests and in some cases get results before the end of your pet’s appointment. These tests are extremely valuable for health screening, disease prevention, and pre-anesthetic testing, and include:
- Heartworm testing for dogs
- Testing for Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases in dogs
- Complete blood count (CBC)
- Comprehensive blood panel
- Thyroid testing
- And more
For testing that requires detailed results, we send samples to external laboratories for evaluation.
Cat and Dog Ultrasound
Ultrasound is an important tool for diagnosing conditions affecting the soft-tissue organs. It bounces soundwaves off the organs, creating a real-time, moving image that can be evaluated for unusual changes. With ultrasound, we’re in a much better position to diagnose pregnancies, tumors/cysts, fluid in the chest or abdomen, and bladder stones.
