Laboratory

If your pet needs screening for any medical conditions, we have the latest  IDEXX  in-house laboratory which can provide same day results for a wide range of tests.  This also allows us to perform our reccomended pre-anaesthetic blood tests on the morning of your pets procedure.

For other tests we can send these to our external laboratories Gribbles Veterinary Pathology and NZVP 

If your pet requires a blood test , this is usually collected after clipping a small amount of fur off their neck and taking the sample from their jugular vein.  This is a quick and painless procedure that is normally performed without sedation
