In-house laboratory

We have an in-house laboratory where we can run many tests with same-day results, including blood samples, urine samples, faecal worm counts and FNAs. Being able to run these tests in-house means we can get quick, often same-day results and we are not relying on the postal service or courier collections and deliveries.

We can run in-house pre-anaesthetic blood tests before a procedure to ensure we are aware of any additional anaesthetic risks and any necessary extra precautions can be put in place to make things go as smoothly as possible. We also work alongside various external laboratories so have access to more complex testing for dogs, cats and exotic pets.
