A Deeper Look: Diagnostics at Broadway Animal Hospital
Our complex diagnostic equipment helps break down your pet’s health into multiple layers so we can more easily pinpoint the source of trouble and address it accordingly. Diagnosing your pet’s symptoms may seem simple, but a surface problem may actually be only a small part of a deeper problem. Running regular tests and screenings helps us catch issues early, giving your pet a better chance at a fast, full recovery.
Full Laboratory Capabilities
Diagnostic equipment comes in many shapes and sizes. Our full IDEXX lab does it all. While we do often send out some tests, for speedier results we can do just about anything right here in house. Here’s what our lab is capable of:
- CBC (complete blood count)
- Chemical panel
- Fecal testing
- Cytology (examining skin cells for abnormalities)
- Heartworm testing
- … and more!
Typically, we do general diagnostic tests at your annual wellness exam to screen for abnormalities, parasites, and disease. Staying ahead of the curve with your pet’s health ensures they live longer, healthier lives with you.
Advanced Imaging Diagnostics
When we need to see the internal workings of your pet, we have diagnostic technology that helps us do just that. We have digital X-Rays, ultrasonography, and an Echocardiogram (EKG) scanner all in house, as well as a board-certified radiologist we work with for specialist reviews.
Each of these tools helps in determining different issues with your pet
- X-Rays show us issues with the skeletal structure, as well as any foreign bodies within the abdominal cavity.
- Ultrasounds lets us see your pet’s internal organs at work. Since it is a moving, live image, we can see just how each organ, joint, or muscle is functioning as is.
- EKGs are essential for determining cardiology issues such as heart disease, irregular heartbeat, and more.

My experience with Broadway Animal Hospital has been great in dealing with my 18 year old kitty who has failing kidneys. Super friendly and very helpful. Dr Perry and hospital manager, Michael, have gone above & beyond and have been great about calling me with updates and more. I appreciate them and I am glad they're in the neighborhood.
I trust the care of my beloved 11-year-old pug to Dr. Perry. He is very knowledgeable and gentle. He is not only a doctor, but also a friend who listens. The front staff are always polite and considerate. I love this place! So glad I found it since I am new to Chicago
I've been taking my cat to Broadway Animal Hospital the past few years until recently when she passed away suddenly from a rapidly declining lung condition.
When Dr. Kas was informed of my cat's passing he called me personally to say he was sorry and really comforted me in my time of mourning... I really appreciate that quality of service. I have had nothing but great experiences when I took my kitty in for checkups. When I'm ready to adopt another furry life companion, I'll gladly take them there
Fantastic doctors and staff! Dr. Kaz and his entire staff were just wonderful with our little girl chihuahua mix. Would highly recommend to all!
Dr. Kas and his staff are wonderful. I've been going to BAH for almost 35 years and would never consider going elsewhere. When I visit, I know my companions have had the very best care (and the most up to date care) available. Thank goodness they are here for us!
I rushed my sick cat here for the first time in tears with no appointment made. They took her in immediately and Michael (the manager) stayed with me and her for an entire day while she was sustained on oxygen. Dr. Perry and Michael both did all they could to save my kitty. She was 17 years old and unfortunately passed away when I took her home and off of the oxygen. This office and staff handled her cremation arrangements with such sensitivity and grace and dr. Perry called me immediately after hearing the news of her her passing. I will never take my fur babies anywhere else but here. Your pets are in loving, professional and gentle hands here.
I have been taking our pets here for over 20 yrs now and BAH has always been the best.
Dr. Kaz and his great staff are always professional and exceedingly kind.
We LOVE Broadway Animal Hospital!
What an exceptionally friendly and well-run office! Everyone on staff was extremely helpful and outwardly happy to help. They treated my cat like she was their own and talked me through everything they were doing. If she needs anything else going forward, this is who I'll be taking her to.
I’ve visited 6 animal hospitals as I have moved several times around Chicago. This is hands down the best experience I’ve ever had with a vet in terms of care, pricing and friendliness. Now that my dog is 8 years old, I feel happy to say that we’ve found a team of vets that we trust.
The staff was wonderful! The vet was excellent! We were in and out very quickly but all my questions were answered ! Highly recommend!
I could not love Dr. Kaz and his team more! They are professional and kind and they truly care about each and every one of their patients.
