Laboratory

We have a well equipped laboratory to help us to rapidly and efficiently diagnose what is wrong with your pet.

Our blood testing machine can process blood samples rapidly, allowing us to get results within minutes.



 


We have a microscope for looking at blood samples, samples from lumps and bumps, fluid, skin samples and more.

If samples need to be sent to an outside laboratory, the samples are collected by a courier at night ensuring they reach the external laboratory bright and early the next morning.

Results are then emailed and faxed to us as soon as they are ready. We can also check on the laboratory's website to check on the progress of samples.
