Blood tests

We can run a variety of in-house blood tests with accurate results available on the same day. This enables the vet to reach a correct diagnosis quickly and plan the appropriate treatment for your pet.

A small number of tests will need to be sent to an external laboratory with results available in 1 - 5 days.


We can perform tests on urine in-house, giving us an insight into the health of your animal’s kidneys, test for diabetes, and assess urine infections rapidly allowing for further tests to be performed immediately if we have any concerns. This ensures your pet gets the appropriate treatment as soon as possible.


We can perform cytology (the study of cells) tests in-house. Samples may be taken from the skin or ears or sometimes with a fine needle from lumps and bumps. This gives us an opportunity to make a diagnosis on benign problems, avoiding unnecessary surgery.
