In-House Laboratory & Diagnostic Services
Early detection is key when it comes to diagnosing and treating your pet, and Avenues Pet Clinic offers complete in-house diagnostics through our on-site laboratory. This saves time, money, and most importantly, you don’t have to wait overnight for results—meaning your pet gets a diagnosis and needed treatment sooner.
Avenues Pet Clinic can perform various blood screens, pre-anesthetic bloodwork, urinalysis and other types of testing right in our clinic instead of sending samples to an outside lab. And while we do offer an extensive range of on-site testing, we also work with a highly recognized national reference laboratory to provide laboratory testing that is beyond our scope.
COMMON LABS OFFERED:
- Liver enzyme screening
- Pancreatic evaluation
- Renal (kidney) profiles
- Complete blood counts (CBC)
- General chemistries
- FeLV and FIV viral screening in cats
- Parvovirus in dogs

Avenues Pet Clinic uses a digital X-ray system to help guarantee the highest quality of care for our patients.
Radiographs (also called X-rays) use electromagnetic radiation directed towards the body to create an image that highlights bone and internal organs. They can detect abnormalities including skeletal fractures, soft tissue damage, foreign bodies and dental disease. Our team also consults with a team of board-certified radiologists who can provide us with a second opinion when needed.
Looking for the Best Vet Clinic in Cheyenne?
Like X-rays, digital ultrasound allows our Cheyenne veterinarians to evaluate potential internal medical problems in your pet. Whereas radiographs offer a detailed look at bones, joints and a general overview of internal organs, ultrasound is used to evaluate soft tissues and detect injury or disease.
Your doctor may suggest an ultrasound to evaluate tendons or ligament damage or to get a closer look at internal organs or masses. In fact, ultrasound can even be used for guided procedures like biopsy, cystocentesis, abdominocentesis and more.
