Our Diagnostic Testing Services Include

Laboratory Tests

Our in-house laboratory enables us to perform a wide range of tests with quick turnaround times. This includes complete blood counts (CBC), biochemistry panels, urinalysis, fecal exams for parasites, and more. These tests are crucial for assessing the overall health of your pet and can detect conditions such as anemia, infections, diabetes, kidney and liver disease, and gastrointestinal parasites.

Imaging Services

We offer comprehensive imaging services, including digital radiography (X-rays) and ultrasound, to provide detailed images of your pet’s internal structures. These non-invasive tests are essential for diagnosing conditions affecting the bones, chest, abdomen, and heart. Our partnership with specialised facilities also allows us to refer your pet for advanced imaging services, such as CT scans and MRI, if necessary.

Heart and Lung Evaluation

Our clinic is equipped to perform electrocardiography (ECG) and blood pressure measurements, vital for diagnosing and monitoring heart and lung diseases. These tests help us evaluate the electrical activity of the heart and ensure the efficient functioning of your pet’s cardiovascular system.

Dermatological Testing

For pets experiencing skin issues, we offer dermatological testing, including skin scrapings, fungal cultures, and allergy testing. These tests help us identify the cause of skin irritations, infections, and allergies, allowing us to tailor a treatment plan to your pet’s specific needs.

Eye and Ear Examinations

Our veterinary team is skilled in conducting thorough eye and ear examinations, utilising specialised equipment to assess and diagnose a variety of conditions that can affect your pet’s vision and hearing.

Frequently asked questions

Are diagnostic tests painful for my pet?

Most diagnostic tests are non-invasive and cause minimal discomfort. For tests that may cause anxiety or slight pain, we use techniques and sedation when necessary to ensure your pet’s comfort.

How do I prepare my pet for diagnostic testing?

Preparation varies depending on the test. We may ask for your pet to fast or withhold certain medications. Specific instructions will be provided when you schedule the test.

How long does it take to get results?

Many tests offer same-day results thanks to our in-house laboratory. For specialised tests or those sent to external labs, it may take a few days. We’ll inform you about the expected timeline.

What happens after the test results come in?

Our veterinary team will review the results with you, explain what they mean, and discuss any recommended treatments or follow-up care.
