In-house Laboratory

Our clinic laboratory is very well equipped with the latest technology in blood and urine testing.  This enables us to perform in-house diagnostics with a very rapid turn-around time.  Services include:

  • Pre-anaesthetic blood test – we recommend a blood test for all surgical patients over the age of 7 years. This allows us to uncover any pre-existing organ dysfunction that may not be clinically apparent, and then make allowances for that in our anaesthetic planning.
  • Wellness screening – an annual blood test in our more senior patients is an excellent way of monitoring health, and picking up any changes early. It also provides us with baseline values for your pet, so we have something to compare to when they get sick.
  • Sick pet testing – our comprehensive blood test yields detained results within 30 minutes, allowing us to get to the bottom of your pet’s illness quickly.
