Our state of the art - in-house pathology machine enables us to offer on the spot blood tests. This means we can get the answers we need very quickly.
This is very helpful as we can find out on the day if the patient has any pre-existing disease before a general anaesthetic is given – to minimise as much risk to our patients as possible. It is also a great tool to diagnose illness and conditions early and accurately on all patients.
As well as our blood machines we also run tests on urine, faeces and cytology. To give us all the answers we need to make an accurate diagnosis for your pet.
