In-house Laboratory Diagnostics

We have a wide range of in-house laboratory diagnostic equipment. This includes modern biochemistry machines that are able to measure various organ enzyme levels, blood glucose, blood proteins, electrolytes and blood gases amongst others. These machines allow us to diagnose several diseases almost immediately, rather than having to wait many hours if not days for results from an external laboratory.

Methods and equipment that we use enable us to diagnose disease, detect worm infestations, examine microscopic samples from abnormal skin or lumps, and special lights and stains that enable us to diagnose specific skin and eye problems.

We have a number of specialised in-house tests that enable us to diagnose specific diseases such as Feline Immunodeficiency Virus ("Feline Aids"), Parvovirus, Heartworm, Canine Pancreatitis and Psittacine Beak and Feather Disease.
