In-house Laboratory

Having an in-house laboratory means we can perform basic diagnostic tests such as smears, biochemistry, haematology and urinalysis quickly and efficiently to give you a swift diagnosis.

In all of our clinics we have biochemistry blood machines, which can rapidly assess an animal’s biochemistry status. We are also proud to now have machines to test the clotting times and hematology in Amberley and Culverden saving valuable time in sending the sample to the laboratory in Christchurch. This is essential in an emergency or when the lab is closed, allowing treatment to start sooner.
