Laboratory

 

Our in-house laboratory equipment ensures that blood results, cytology (microscopy) and urine tests can be performed and results obtained within the hour. If an animal is unwell, blood & urine testing can be a vital piece of the puzzle in diagnosing the problem. Our on-site laboratory allows a diagnosis to be reached as fast as possible and we do not have to rely on courier pick-ups and external pathology labs to run the tests. Certainly not all veterinary hospitals and not even human GP’s have extensive diagnostic laboratory equipment on-site.

So what laboratory equipment do we have?

Haematology Analyser

  • Analysis of red blood cells, white blood cells & platelets.
  • Useful in cases of anaemia, blood loss, infection, chronic disease

Biochemistry Analyser

  • Kidney function, liver function, electrolytes, protein levels and diabetes

Emergency Blood-Gas Machine

  • Critical care monitoring eg severe tick paralysis, trauma, respiratory problems

Coagulation Testing

  • Tests blood clotting ability
  • Useful in cases of suspected rat bait poisoning or bleeding abnormalities

Urinalysis

  • Tests the urine for glucose (diabetes), protein, bacteria (UTI), blood and pH level

Microscopy

  • Skin testing, ear swabs, fine needle aspiration (eg lumps, fluid analysis), blood smears

Other Tests

  • We are also able to test for Canine Parvovirus, Canine Heartworm Disease, Pancreatitis (CPL), Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), Feline Leukaemia Virus (FeLV), Ringworm.

Reference Laboratories

  • We also have access to the best external laboratories in Australia and carefully choose where to send our external tests so as to receive the best outcomes for your pet.

Gordon Vet has looked after my golden retriever since she was 9 weeks. Everyone has been amazing and caring with lots of experience. I have been able to ask any questions and always been welcome. Even one day when she stepped on a bee in the evening, they stayed open until we got there and helped her get it out. Thanks to all the staff :-)

Exceptional veterinary hospital. I have been taking my dog here for many years and although I now live in the Eastern Suburbs, I still drive across town to see the Vets at Gordon. The staff are highly skilled, compassionate, friendly and helpful. My 9 year old dog has had 2 knee operations (1 on each knee!) and the outcome of these surgeries far exceeded my expectations. I have been incredibly impressed with the care provided during all of our visits. I would highly recommend Gordon Vet Hospital.

Fantastic and friendly staff who you can tell really care about your pet. Their follow up service is also very reassuring. I also board my cat with Gordon Vet and I feel very comfortable to know he's in safe and caring hands. I'm so glad I found this clinic.

Compassionate, caring and highly skilled veterinary surgeons who treat their patients and owners with respect. The nursing and administration staff are efficient and remember their patients by name which is a lovely touch. A lovely vet practice which despite our Golden Retriever Finn’s complex medical history, is always welcoming to him and he never displays any signs of anxiety when attending. Dr Helen is lovely and a firm favourite of ours!

We found a stray, agitated dog in front of our house last night. We phoned but got no help from the Council ranger who gave two options: tie him up in front yard overnight or "let him loose, he'll find his own way home" :( So we phoned Gordon Vet: they stayed open a few minutes so we could run him up and he could have a bed and dinner. Thank you Gordon Vet Hospital, hope he gets home soon!!! :)

Absolutely love the service here. I switched from other Vets to this Vet as the staff here are quite attentive and really care about your furry baby! I have basically seen most of the Dr's here and all of them so far have been fantastic, friendly and fun to speak with! Easy to locate and enough parking available! 5 Stars indeed!
