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.
