Blood and other samples are frequently needed for diagnostic purposes, not only when your pet is unwell, but also as part of our preventative methods, so that disease processes can be detected as early as possible.


Our in house laboratory enables us to provide a range of individual tests and profiles to best suit your pets needs at competitive prices, alongside expert interpretation and advice. You can expect a fast turnaround of results allowing a quick decision on treatment helping improve patient well-being: something that is particularly important when providing emergency care.
