In House Laboratory

The added convenience of a well equipped local clinic. Your Vets


   

In 2017 we installed the latest IDEXX hematology and biochemistry blood analyser machines. These use the same technology and have the same accuracy as the blood analysers used in commercial laboratories.

These include

  • Complete Blood count in 3 minutes- this analyses red and white blood cells and can help detect anemia, infection and certain cancers.
  • Biochemistry profiles in 8 minutes. These include liver and kidney function, diabetes, pancreatic function, blood cholesterol,electrolytes, blood proteins and thyroid function.
  • Urine Testing
  • Often we can run the tests while you wait and at any time of the day!
  • Testing for FIV and Feline Leukemia

We offer and recommend pre anesthetic blood testing for older patients undergoing surgical procedures where it is important to identify pre existing or borderline kidney or liver problems or sometimes diabetes.

Our laboratory results are stored in the cloud and we can get specialised advice from New Zealand or overseas specialists if needed very quickly.

We can also use an outside laboratory for other more specialized testing when needed, and can normally have these results back the same day or overnight.
