Our practice has a fully equiped laboratory with the most up to date instruments for measuring biochemistry, haematology and blood electrolytes.
These tests are run in house and give the vets a full set of blood results in about 10 minutes. We can asses a patients fitness for a general aneasthetic with a Pre-Ga blood test as well as diagnose complex illness`s in our sick patients.
We also perform geriatric blood profiles in the in-house laboratory to identify common age related diseases before they become serious. Dogs and cats commonly hide signs of disease until it is advanced and this then limits our options for treatment. Any pet over the age of 8 years is a candidate for our `well – pet` health check and blood test. Please call the surgery for an appointment.
