We offer an extensive range of in-house tests, many of which can be performed while you wait. For more specialised tests, we may need to use our external laboratory. Every week day, a courier collects samples and drives them to our external lab (IDEXX) so that the samples can be processed as quickly as possible.

Our internal lab tests include:

  • Haematology – blood cells
  • Blood typing
  • Blood clotting
  • Blood gases
  • Biochemistry – liver function, kidney function etc
  • Some hormone tests e.g. thyroid testing
  • Urine testing
  • Patient side testing for many common diseases including:
    • Lungworm
    • Parvo virus
    • Giardia
    • Feline Immunodeficiency virus/ Feline Leukaemia Virus
    • Pancreatitis
