Early detection is key when it comes to treating your pet. Animal General of Cranberry offers complete diagnostics. Common testing includes:

  • Liver enzyme screening
  • Pancreatic evaluation
  • Renal (Kidney) profiles
  • Complete blood counts
  • General chemistries
  • Blood gases
  • FelV, FIV in cats
  • Parvovirus in dogs

While we do offer an extensive range of on-site testing, it is possible that your pet may need laboratory work beyond the scope of our in-house laboratory. In those circumstances, we utilize diagnostic laboratories across the country to meet the needs of our patients, including the labs at Cornell, Michigan State University and the University of Tennessee.

Digital Radiology (X-Rays)
Animal General of Cranberry employs advanced imaging technologies, guaranteeing the highest quality of care for our patients.

Radiographs (X-rays) use electromagnetic radiation directed towards the body to highlight objects within. They can detect abnormalities including skeletal fractures, soft tissue damage, foreign bodies and dental disease.

Orthopedic radiographs and contrast studies require the patient remain completely still to work correctly. Some specialized procedures may require anesthesia. The duration of sedation or anesthesia is usually short and patient recovery is swift.

Ultrasound
We offer mobile ultrasound from a board-certified Internal Medicine specialist. Ultrasound is a powerful diagnostic tool that creates a real-time image of an animal’s body. This composite reveals important information about internal processes including the circulatory, skeletal and gastrointestinal systems. When used in conjunction with other diagnostic tools, ultrasound can help identify disease, blockages, skeletal fractures, soft tissue damage and other internal injuries.
