Struggletown Vets has an extensive in house laboratory. The lab can perform blood, urine and faecal tests and microscopy as well.
The results are available immediately, meaning our vets can start the appropriate treatment very quickly, without having to wait for results from an external laboratory.
Some tests, that are either unavailable in our in house lab, are more specialised, or require a specialist pathologist to look at them will still need to be sent to an external laboratory. Your vet will discuss which tests are required and whether they will be done in house or sent away. External lab results are usually available within 24-72 hours, but this can vary depending on the type of test.
