With the rapid development of technology on many fronts, veterinary medicine has also benefited. Being able to offer an “in-house” laboratory service is now a reality. This technology comes in various forms, sizes and abilities. At Drovers Veterinary Hospital, we are pleased to be able to offer a full range of in-house diagnostics. Where most facilities may only be able to offer a simple range of tests in house, we are able to offer the following:

  • Full biochemical testing including kidney/ liver/ pancreas function
  • Full electrolyte and blood gas analysis (important for emergency cases and in hospital monitoring of cases)
  • Full Blood Count analysis (important for our chemotherapy cases as well as for most routine health profiles)
  • Full microscopic cytology analysis
  • General urinalysis
  • Feline leukaemia virus testing
  • Feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) testing
  • Heartworm testing
  • Endocrine/ Hormonal testing (cortisol, thyroid and glucose levels)

Most blood tests would be available within a few hours, compared to a 1-2 days if sent off site. We see this efficient and vital service as an integral part of our diagnostic process because a quicker and more accurate diagnosis means a quicker onset to the correct treatment which in turn provides a better and more complete recovery.
