Pet Diagnostics and Internal Medicine in Waynesboro
Your pet can’t tell you when they're not feeling well. Thus, our veterinarians have a responsibility to identify and diagnose illness in pets. Due to the biological instincts of their wild ancestors, dogs and cats will try to hide signs of pain and sickness. At Animal Hospital of Waynesboro, we use digital X-ray, ultrasound, in-house testing, external laboratories, and on-site EKG services to uncover the mysteries of your pet’s health and diagnose (and treat) their problems sooner.
Types of Pet Health Problems We Work With
Our team helps in treating and managing a wide variety of health conditions in pets, including:
- Cushing’s Disease
- Hyperthyroid and hypothyroid
- Heart disease
- Kidney disease
How We Apply Our Pet Diagnostic Tools
With our in-house diagnostic lab, we can run many different tests to detect diseases early and better understand your pet’s condition. Blood tests can show evidence of infection and other values indicating a change in your pet’s baseline. Additionally, we can test urine samples to evaluate urinary tract health and other problems. For more specialized workups, we turn to commercial laboratories.
- Serum chemistry
- Blood chemistry
- CBC (complete blood count)
- Parasite testing (roundworm, heartworm disease, Lyme disease, etc.)
Digital X-ray uses less radiation than film X-ray and allows us to take high-quality X-ray images quickly. With X-ray, we can do an internal exam of the bones, joints, heart, and lungs. An X-ray can alert us to a foreign body in your pet’s stomach or intestines, broken bones, tumors, and other issues.
Ultrasound uses sound waves instead of radiation to create an image of your pet’s internal systems. We can evaluate the soft tissue organs in better detail and while they are in motion, so we can check their function as well.
EKG stands for “electrocardiogram.” It involves placing electrodes on the skin to monitor the heart’s electrical activity and measure how fast the heart beats.
Everybody is always so happy and helpful here! Love going here! Glad my boss referred me to come here! I will definitely recommend to anyone that needs a vet!
As always, a very caring staff! THANK YOU ALL!! We love you for loving our fur babies. - SYLVIA
I trust Dr. Lorenze and his team with my precious pets. He's been a part of our family for years and we feel comfortable with our furbabies in his care. Very considerate, professional and knowledgeable.
The staff is always courteous, caring and friendly. They helped get us through one of our toughest days, losing 2 pets at once, and always treat us like family.
We love how wonderful Gracie is treated. Excellent customer service and outstanding care!- MOLLY
My cat is very afraid of strangers yet has no problem with vets and techs at Animal Hospital of Waynesboro. I don't know what their secret is but I applaud their care and treatment.
This is my far the best animal hospital around every single person in that office is so genuine and care so much. I wouldn’t trust my baby with anyone else!- FAITH
My pet's have always been treated with the best care possible. Very much feels like my pets are loved.
Tech, Emily, was very thorough in her phone questions. Tech, Kim, assured me that my grumpy cat had behaved herself during her exam! Dr. Reeder provided excellent care to my 19+ yr old "lady"! And CSR, Tammy, checked me out very quickly in the car!
What a great team at AHW! Rosie doesn't "quake" when we pull in the parking lot so that tells me SHE also thinks Dr. Weeks at the rest of the team are great, too!- ANONYMOUS

We continue to receive amazing service, especially the customer service in the pandemic. The customer service people are doing a super job, as are the vet techs. Thank you for continuing the quality care during covid. - TERI
The staff makes the transition well during this time of curbside only service. They have been doing their best during these trying times. Hats off to them for being loving, safe and kind towards our fur pets and us!
You have been there for me with 4 dogs, 2 deceased, and my present 2 little rascals. Your staff is wonderful. I have the utmost respect for and trust in Dr. Weiss. You have accommodated my special needs/cat allergy as well. Thank you so much.
Everything was very timely, which I know cannot always be guaranteed because of emergencies. We are always happy to wait as Baxter is eager to sniff every blade of grass on your campus! This time, though, every single aspect of our visit was efficient. As always, excellent communication from the doctor and the staff.
