Blood Biochemistry Analyser
The analysis of blood samples collected from animals allows us to determine the health of many of the internal organs of the patient eg the liver, the kidneys, pancreas etc. This allows us more accurate and speedy diagnoses in clinical cases; it also allows us to monitor patients receiving long term medication; and finally elderly or at risk patients can be screened prior to anaesthesia or surgery.
The practice has an Abaxis Vetscan blood biochemistry analyser on the surgery premises. This allows us to have results within an hour of collection and certainly on the day of collection.
Please note that except in emergencies, patients are required to be fasted for 12 hours prior to the collection of a blood sample intended for blood biochemistry analysis.
