Diagnostics & Pharmacy

Diagnostics & Pharmacy

Iowa Veterinary Wellness Center offers high-quality digital radiology, as well as a wide variety of both in-house and off-site laboratory services. When your pet isn’t feeling their best, our in-house diagnostic equipment means that we can get answers fast—and get them on the road to recovery.


X-rays provide invaluable information about more than just your pet’s bones. Soft tissues such as muscles, tendons, and internal organs can all be evaluated via x-rays. In addition to ill or injured pets, x-rays can also be utilized for disease screening purposes, such as doing hip and elbow x-rays for OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) evaluation.

We are also pleased to be able to offer high-quality digital dental radiology equipment. Dental x-rays are an integral part of your pet’s dental procedure and allow us to visualize what’s going on beneath the gum line to get a complete assessment of your pet’s oral health.

In-House Pharmacy

Iowa Veterinary Wellness Center offers the single most comprehensive pet pharmacy available in Iowa.

Due to our specialty practices that encompass holistic care, we not only provide the routine, “run of the mill” medications like antibiotics, thyroid medications, and pain relievers, we also provide a complete and extensive line of Chinese herbal medications, as well as nutritional supplements. We also partner with several different compounding pharmacies as well as a veterinary distributor pharmacy to help make sure that we have access to every medication we could possibly ever desire. And if it isn’t made, one of our compounding pharmacies will do it for us!
