Our In-House Laboratory

Being able to run a multitude of tests on site means we are able to get quick results and support faster diagnosis. It is especially invaluable in emergency cases.

We offer a range of tests to diagnose specific medical conditions (such as thyroid problems and diabetes), to help in reproduction, or for general health monitoring.

Specifically we can test for:

  • Haematology
  • Biochemistry
  • Electrolytes
  • Canine pancreatic lipase
  • Feline Thyroxine
  • Feline Lipase
  • Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (feline AIDS)
  • Feline Leukaemia
  • Phenobarbital
  • Parvovirus
  • Ovulation Tests
  • Dermatological evaluations
  • Microscopy
  • Urinalysis
  • Fungal Cultures
  • Vaccine Titre Testing
