Here at Riverside Veterinary Surgery we have our own inhouse laboratory, where we are able to run various blood test, urine test and examine samples under a microscope.
Blood test include Biochemistry, Haematology, Electrolyte levels and thyroid levels.
Using our inhouse microscope we are able to examine urine sample, skin scrapes and blood smears. We are able to look for parasites, urine crystals as well as other abnormalities.
We have a small inhouse urine analyser that will tell us basic information about your pets urine to help diagnosis conditions like a urine infection and diabetes.
Using these inhouse analysers along with sending samples to an external laboratory for more in-depth testing we are able to assist the veterinary surgeons in the diagnosis of your pets.
