BLOOD TESTING

Our Idexx In-house blood and urine testing laboratory equipment is the most up-to-date equipment available. Because laboratory testing is an important part assessing your pet’s health our equipment allows us to be very accurately obtain heamatology, biochemistry, electrolyte and urinalysis results fast. We also use traditional equipment such as microscopes for skin, blood, urine, tissue and fluid analysis.

Lab testing involves taking samples of blood, urine, faeces, skin, lumps or even areas of infection. Sometimes it can be as simple as getting a small drop of blood. Other times it can require surgery to take a biopsy. Whatever sample is needed we take good care to cause the least discomfort to your pet.

If you need emergency treatment for your pet after hours please call the Manukau After Hours Veterinary Clinic on 09 277 8383. This clinic is located at 15 Jack Conway Ave and is staffed by Nurses and Veterinarians all night, weekends and public holidays.
