At Cherry Hill Animal Hospital, we have a wide range of services that will provide your beloved pet with a lifetime of veterinary care and support.
There are many tests we can run to effectively monitor the health of your pet. We utilize both on-site equipment and a state-of-the-art off-site diagnostic testing facility to process the lab work taken at Cherry Hill Animal Hospital. Here is a list of some common tests you may hear our doctors mention or see on your paperwork during your visit:
We are fully equipped with a digital X-ray unit, allowing us to evaluate and assess your pet completely and quickly. An X-ray is helpful for evaluating orthopedic complications such as trauma and arthritis. During times of stomach upset, an X-ray can help in determining if an intestinal blockage is present. In any case of coughing or respiratory changes, a chest X-ray helps to evaluate airway and heart health.
As a part of the Red Bank Veterinary Hospital network, included in each X-ray is a full interpretation by a board-certified veterinary radiologist at Red Bank Veterinary Hospital in Mount Laurel, improving the efficacy and quality of this diagnostic test.
At Cherry Hill Animal Hospital, we are equipped with a small ultrasound unit that helps us effectively assess your pet’s unique medical needs. This machine helps our doctors to monitor and evaluate your pet’s bladder when taking urinary samples, as well as quickly and efficiently check for fluid around the heart, chest, or abdomen in the event of a medical emergency. Full and focal diagnostic abdominal ultrasounds, fluid testing, and echocardiograms are also available at our nearby sister specialty hospital, Red Bank Veterinary Hospital in Mount Laurel.
An electrocardiogram (ECG) is an electrical representation of the heart. Changes in the pattern shown on the monitor indicate changes that are occurring with your pet’s heart. We are easily able to monitor and interpret any abnormalities with our ECG unit. Because of our partnership with Red Bank Veterinary Hospital in Mount Laurel, we can also have a board-certified cardiologist interpret subtle or more challenging changes when indicated.
Blood pressure evaluation is an important part of routine monitoring for many different diseases. This can be done quickly and easily right at our hospital. We may even have you hold your pet during the procedure to help reduce stress levels, resulting in a more accurate read.
