Laboratories


All of our main surgeries are equiped with high quality in-house blood machines from Menarini, allowing results to be obtained swiftly in critical cases. These machines allow us to analyse haematology, biochemistry and electrolyte information. A range of in house elisa tests are also stored at some sites, allowing us to test for common conditions such as FIV (Feline Immunodeficieny Virus), FELV (Feline Leukaemia Virus) and Parvovirus.

Our in house laboratories are also equiped with microscopes and urinalysis equipment, facilitating faster results and diagnosis for our patients and clients.

There will, of course, still be many occasions when we need to use the services of external laboratories for other less common tests. As part of CVS, Active Vetcare utilises both the Axiom Laboratory and Finn Laboratory and samples are collected by courier each weekday evening, allowing faster turn-around times of results, often within 24 hours (depending on the test).
