Over the past few years we’ve been adding to our internal lab where we run various tests on blood, urine and microscope samples for immediate results. With all the equipment and technology to make results transfer to the animals medical records we were running out of space! So at the beginning of the year, and fitting in around a busy weekend for our emergency vet and nurse, we’ve had a refurbishment thanks to Franklin Vale Property Services. Now we’ve got plenty more space to work in, as well as lots of storage space for our lab supplies. Tests we’re able to run include:

 

  • Full haematology
  • Full blood biochemistry including electrolytes and some thyroid levels
  • Urine dipstick and microscopic exam
  • Microscopic examination of skin samples and masses
  • Specific blood tests for lungworm, pancreatitis and FeLV/FIV
  • Pre-mate blood tests
