Using the most advanced, top-of-the-range equipment and analysers our in-house diagnostic work becomes a crucial tool in being able to offer patients a correct and accurate diagnosis from Animal Blood Testing every time!
Animal blood is a mixture of cells, fluid, proteins and other biochemicals. If you require a blood test, we will look at what makes up your blood at that particular point in time. The results from Animal Blood Testing will allow our vets to use this information to learn more about your pet’s health.
There are many occasions when a vet will decide to perform a pet blood test. Their purpose is to obtain information that cannot be gained by just examining the pet. We are proud to be able to offer in-house diagnostic blood work on our patients. We use the latest industry-standard analysers which will typically provide results within 30 minutes.
Animal Blood Testing
With our advanced equipment, we can perform many tests as required, including:
Adrenal and Pituitary
Endocrinology and Radioimmunoassay
Pre-anaesthetic Blood Screening
A pre-anaesthetic blood screen is recommended to assess your pet’s general health and suitability to undergo general anaesthesia.
The blood test results will allow the vet to assess whether any adjustments need to be made to your pet’s anaesthetic protocol, such as supportive intravenous fluid therapy.
Blood work before surgery gives your surgeon a chance to potentially alter their typical drug protocol for sedation and anaesthesia, to a combination of different medications that are safer for your specific animal. Every drug has its side effects, and we want the best outcome possible for you and your pet.
Pre anaesthetic blood screening is harmful to your pet and always comes recommended! This is to ensure safer anaesthesia and a happy recovery from surgery. With this better understanding of why we recommend testing the blood before anaesthesia, we trust that you will be able to make the right decision for your pet next time you are given the option.
