Diagnostic Procedures

Clinical Pathology

Clinical pathology involves the laboratory evaluation of blood, bodily fluids or tissue in order to identify existing disease, monitor treatment protocols or disease progression & to check organs that are cannot be checked during a general physical examination.  Common laboratory tests include blood chemistries, complete blood counts, blood clotting times, urinalysis, faecal tests & biopsy examination. Some more specialised tests may need to be performed by an external veterinary laboratory

Radiology

We use Xrays to help us evaluate a number of conditions including  those involving the musculoskeletal and organ systems. We have a modern new in house Xray machine which provides high quality images.

Ultrasound

This is a non-invasive and state of the art diagnostic modality. We have our own in house ultrasound and are also able to call on the services of a specialist ultrasonographer, should your pet require it. Ultrasound is a pain free way to give us plenty of information about your pet’s condition. It uses sound waves to create an internal picture of your animal’s organs.
