Lakeland Veterinary Imaging is excited to offer a new option for referral diagnostic imaging to Northern Wisconsin veterinarians and pet owners.  Starting December 1, 2021, we have partnered with Trout Creek Veterinary Center to lease space and offer outpatient referral diagnostic veterinary imaging.  

With the current climate of veterinarian and staff shortages in Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, we realize that our current model of mobile diagnostic imaging that utilizes veterinary clinic staff to complete our ultrasound studies cannot meet everyone’s needs.  We anticipate that a fixed location for referral will remove this personnel and space burden for many referring veterinarians, while still continuing to offer quality referral diagnostic imaging as an option for patients.  

Outpatient Referral Diagnostic Imaging with Lakeland Veterinary Imaging

Scheduling

To schedule an appointment for ultrasound or other diagnostic imaging studies (PennHIP or OFA testing), pet owners can contact us directly at (608)630-6930 or email us at info@lakelandvetimaging.com.

Currently, we are scheduling appointments on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Our office space is located inside Trout Creek Veterinary Center at:
560 Centennial Centre Blvd, #110
Hobart, WI 54155

Prior to Arrival

Occasionally light sedation is necessary for a complete and thorough ultrasound exam.  Sedation is usually required for pets undergoing ultrasound-guided sampling procedures.  In preparation for this, we recommend your pet not be fed for at least 8-12 hours prior to their exam.  It is generally not necessary to withhold water during this time (unless specifically recommended by your primary veterinarian or the LVI veterinarians).  

** If patients are having an ultrasound for kidney/urinary issues, it is best if the pet arrives to the appointment with a full bladder. **

During the Appointment

Most appointments take 1 hour or less to complete. During your pet's ultrasound or radiography appointment, we expect you to remain available by phone.   You are welcome to wait in the lobby of Trout Creek Veterinary Care, in your car, or (weather permitting) to take a short walk locally.  

We are fully equipped to perform ultrasound-guided aspirates or biopsy, cageside coagulation profile at the time of your pet's ultrasound if needed.

Follow Up

In most cases, an imaging diagnosis is available at the time of the exam.  Dr. Heder and Dr. Miller will discuss all imaging findings directly with the pet owners when studies are performed on an outpatient referral basis.

Written ultrasound/radiograph reports (provided by the next business day) will be provided to you and your pet's primary veterinarian or veterinary specialist via email.  

If needle aspirate, biopsy, or other organ sampling is obtained with ultrasound guidance, these results are often not available for 3-5 business days (depending on the laboratory).  Additional diagnostic test results (bloodwork, cytology, histopathology, PennHIP and OFA reports, etc...) will also be shared via email as soon as results are available.

Payment

Payment is expected at the time of appointment.  We prefer when there are no surprises for you regarding fees and we work hard to make sure our estimates are accurate and complete.  We are always happy to discuss a fee estimate with you in advance.  

We accept payment in the form of cash (exact change only), check, credit card, or Care Credit
