In-house Laboratory

We use our laboratory to test for a wide range of conditions

Our in-house laboratory contains state of the art ‘in house’ analysers, allowing us to get test results the same day, or even in minutes if required.

We use our laboratory to test for a wide range of conditions on blood, urine, faeces and tissue samples and the tests are run and samples are examined by our skilled veterinary nurses.


We have blood analysis machines for haematology, biochemistry and electrolyte testing. We can perform pre-anaesthetic blood screens to ensure our patients are fit and well before surgery, well-pet screens for routine blood testing, and blood screening for illnesses, within a few minutes of the blood being drawn.


We work closely with two large external laboratories so that we can send samples for analysis when necessary; the samples are couriered overnight so that we can ensure a rapid turnaround for your pets results.
