On-site veterinary laboratory
The on-site veterinary laboratory facilities available at Alpha Vets provide fast, accurate laboratory results that help our team to diagnose a range of conditions. We can provide rapid services such as blood tests and microscopy, including Abaxis processors for exotic species.
Quicker results help pets faster
On-site we have biochemistry and haematology machines that enable our Vets to test blood and body tissues. These can measure levels of enzymes and other substances in the body for an accurate diagnosis, and in some cases can produce test results within 15 minutes.
With the tools to provide same-day test results, our Veterinary Surgeons can pinpoint a variety of health problems quickly without necessarily needing to use more invasive diagnostic methods. This allows for treatment to commence swiftly, which is especially important in emergency situations.
Specialist laboratory services
When a pet requires more specialised investigations, we send samples to a trusted external laboratory service for testing.
A secure courier service collects our samples every night for direct transport to the laboratory. This means we can get the results back to you as quickly as possible, often the very next day. Our Vets will contact you to discus your pet’s results and to make a treatment plan.
