Pet owners trust their veterinarians to provide simple and affordable veterinary diagnostics services. Here at Animal General in New York City, we do just that.
Each day, our facility aims to identify diseases or conditions early enough to improve the lives of our pet patients and the people who love them. Among the services we provide are:
Blood tests have been and will remain to be a cost-effective way to help diagnose a range of ailments that may be affecting your pet. For example, blood work will give the veterinarian a complete blood cell count that may pinpoint something like an infection or anemia.
A chemical analysis of a blood sample looks at things like glucose levels, which may be helpful in diagnosing diabetes or high cholesterol, or determining if your pet is suffering from liver or kidney problems.
Blood work can also detect thyroid problems and liver diseases, among many other things.
Just like with humans, the use of X-ray equipment allows our veterinarians to take images of the bones and internal organs of animals. These pictures help us to confirm traumatic injuries, broken bones, or even foreign objects that a dog or cat may have swallowed. X-rays provide detail and clarity and are a fast and easy way to examine patients before proceeding with any needed treatment.
Ultrasound, also known as a sonogram, is an imaging technique used to see things that X-rays cannot. It sends high-frequency sound waves into the body and then measures them as they bounce back, allowing the ultrasound machine to create a moving image our veterinarians can analyze. The results of an ultrasound are immediate, and that makes it an important diagnostic tool available at our facility. It's also a safe and painless procedure.
Other services we offer include:
- preventative care
- spay and neuter services, and more.
