Timely diagnostic test findings are crucial for assisting your veterinarian in developing the most effective treatment strategy when your pet gets suddenly ill or in the event of an emergency. We have cutting-edge hospital laboratory technology that can produce test results in just a few minutes. Initial laboratory evaluations for your sick pet could consist of:
  • A blood test can be used to determine the white blood cell, red blood cell, and platelet counts. Changes in these counts can signify issues like anaemia, dehydration, infection, auto-immune illness, and certain types of cancer.
  • Blood chemistry tests are used to evaluate the health of the pancreas, liver, kidneys, blood sugar, blood proteins, calcium, and phosphorus levels.
  • Electrolyte tests: When your pet is dehydrated or losing fluids through vomiting or diarrhoea, sodium, potassium, and chloride levels may be abnormal. In cases where electrolytes are badly out of balance, intravenous fluids and/or supplementation may be advised.
  • Tests for SNAP: point-of-care For several infectious disorders, such as canine parvovirus, giardia, leptospirosis, feline leukaemia, and feline immunodeficiency virus, “snap” tests are available.
  • Coagulation tests are used to identify clotting abnormalities that can occur as a result of certain rodenticide poisonings and serious liver illness or failure.
  • Microscopy: In-clinic needle biopsies of swellings or tumours, microscopic evaluation of bodily fluids such as blood and urine samples, samples of skin and ear secretions, and assistance in the diagnosis of systemic diseases, urinary disorders, skin and ear diseases, and the differentiation of benign from cancerous tumours are all possible.

Which tests are most crucial for your pet will be explained with assistance from our veterinary staff. Please don’t be shy about asking questions if you have any, as it is very essential to us that you participate in the selection of your pet.
