We are very fortunate to have an in house laboratory to examine and run tests on a variety of samples including blood, urine, skin or joint fluid. We� are able to perform haematology and biochemistry on blood samples, examine urine, skin scrapes or cell samples under the microscope and do some basic urine testing. We also have some specific test kits to test, for example, certain viruses or hormones. The ability to run tests at the surgery gives us rapid results which allows the vets to make the best possible clinical decision regarding your pets ongoing care. We also use external laboratories for additional testing which cannot be carried out in house.
