We have in house laboratory facilities which allow us to carry out a range of blood tests, urine tests and microscopic examinations.
Blood tests may include measurements of liver and kidney parameters as well as red and white blood cells amongst others. These tests are important indicators of health and certain disease conditions.
Urine samples can be rapidly checked for indications of diabetes, kidney disease and other problems.
Microscopic examination of skin and hair samples will often provide specific diagnostic information.
These tests are used in providing essential diagnostic information, in monitoring ongoing conditions and in assessing fitness to undergo anaesthetic and surgical procedures.
When more specialised tests are needed samples are directly couriered to our dedicated external veterinary laboratory and results are usually returned by e-mail.
