Even though as veterinarians we are well skilled to detect illness in dogs and cats, the clinical examination is limited in how much information it gives us. This means at times we will need to run blood and urine tests to further evaluate the health status of your pet and to determine the effect of medications on your pet.
Many tests we are able to conduct in our onsite laboratory with the results within the hour:
- Urine test
- Pre anaesthetic blood testing
- Emergency blood testing
- Needle biopsies
- Cytology (ear, skin)
More complex blood testing & tissue analysis are sent to a commercial Vet Pathology Laboratory on a daily basis.
