Most test results are available approximately 12 minutes after the collection! Our laboratory is also used to run blood tests before anaesthesia to ensure a safe anaesthetic experience.
For special testing, we have a relationship with Laverty Pathology who collect samples from us two to three times daily.
A blood test consists of looking at chemicals in the blood (biochemistry) and cells in the blood (CBC or blood smear examination).
Our veterinarian will look at the combination of these chemicals to help get to a diagnosis of what organ systems are involved with the disease and how to treat it.
