Occasionally a clinical examination alone is not enough to make an accurate diagnosis of your pet’s condition. Many further tests can be performed on-site at the veterinary hospital. Often the first step is to find out what is going on inside your pet with blood tests to check the function of the internal organs.
A modern laboratory is staffed by a dedicated laboratory technician and being on-site means that the vets can have results rapidly and begin any necessary treatment for your pet. In some cases the ability to produce rapid results can literally be life saving.
