We have invested in the most up-to-date laboratory equipment, which can rapidly analyse your pet’s blood sample giving almost instantaneous results for a very comprehensive range of tests. These tests are therefore available 24/7 and we rarely need to send samples to an outside laboratory.
Routine blood tests look at red and white blood cells and various chemicals in the blood. The lab can be used in order to monitor good health (e.g. before an anaesthetic), to diagnose disease, or to monitor the response to treatment.
Basic blood screening can identify diseases ranging from anaemia to liver and kidney disease, and from infections to problems with the immune system and diabetes. Many other more complex tests can be performed on the premises.
