We are proud to have such facilities which allow 95% of all blood tests to be carried out in-house, providing us with fast and efficient diagnostic results within twenty minutes. Our state-of-the-art hematology and biochemistry machine was updated in 2014 to the latest in in-house technology. This speed and efficiency can make a real difference when treating patients, greatly increasing the precision of the treatments.
This means we can have details of red and white blood cell counts, liver, kidney, pancreatic, thyroid, adrenal functions, bile acids, blood proteins, blood salts (electrolytes) and screens for some infectious diseases so quickly that it can make a real difference to speed and accuracy of treatment.
Some microscopy is also carried out in-house, with cytology forwarded to professional dedicated veterinary laboratories with results returned between 1 to 4 days depending on the samples sent.
