Laboratory

pathology 2So what laboratory equipment do we have?

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.

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!

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!!! :)
