    You are correct- a PET scan does not involve dogs and cats. It is a Positron emission tomography (PET) is a nuclear medicine medical imaging technique which produces a three-dimensional image or map of functional processes in the body. (Wikepedia). In other words, it is similare to a CAT scan, but produces 3 dimensional images.
