In House IDEXX Laboratory


Animal blood is a mixture of cells, fluid, proteins and other biochemicals. If you require a blood test, we will look at what makes up their blood at that particular point in time. These results will allow our vets to use this information to learn more about your pet’s health.

There are many occasions when a vet will decide to perform a pet blood test. Their purpose is to obtain information that cannot be gained by just examining the pet.

Here at LocalVets we are proud to be able to offer in-house diagnostic blood work on our patients. We use the latest industry standard analysers which will typically provide results within 1 hour.
