With our new state of the art laboratory equipment we only need a small amount of blood to complete an in house blood test. This means less trauma for the pet, and less time for results. Many veterinary clinics send the samples out and have to wait on the results. We do not.
Megan, one of our Registered Veterinary Technicians, is shown below preparing for a basic blood test. Blood tests are done to see if there are any underlying problems.
This machine tells us the kidney, liver values, and more.
Another part of our laboratory is our microscope. This is not just any microscope but a microscope that has a camera attached to it, so we can see on a screen verses the standard way, although the machine can still do it the "old school" way.
Megan is shown below looking through the microscope both ways.
