Confused about your pet’s diet? We stock a range of the highest quality pet foods and our trained reception staff can help you make the best selection.
We have a comprehensive in-house laboratory onsite here at our clinic.
Along with a physical examination of your pet from ‘nose-to-tail’ checking parameters such as temperature and heart rate, a blood test can offer a multitude of various information about the internal physiology of your pet, including renal functionality, infection and anemia. This assists to serve as an invaluable initial diagnostic tool as to identify what may be going on with your beloved fur friend.
The attending veterinarian will discuss with you the most appropriate testing for your pet depending on the presenting clinical symptoms.
