In house Laboratory

We have made a major investment in our in-clinic laboratory equipment.  We now use the state of the art Idexx laboratory system.  These new analysers are the same as those used in external reference laboratories.  Our in-house laboratory suite allows us to perform an array of diagnostic tests that help us care for your pet.  This ranges from simple laboratory tests to more complex diagnostic tools that help us regarding your pet’s health within a matter of minutes.

Whether it is a critical emergency, in the evening, weekend or prior to surgery we can have the answers in moments.

Blood tests are available immediately on your pet’s file and for viewing via cloud software together with important trend graphs from any previous testing. Results can also be easily emailed to your home.  Call us today to find out more about our facilities and how we are    dedicated to providing the best diagnostic care for your pet.

Every pet admitted for anesthesia is advised to have a blood test panel to help us identify any risk factors which may alter the type of drugs used or treatment given.  Plus a simple blood sample can be taken from your pet in consult and you can wait in the clinic for the results, it’s that quick!
