Our vets are trained in many areas including pathology, microbiology, haematology and parasitology. With our laboratory in the clinic we are able to run many diagnostic tests to help us determine the nature of your pet’s illness.
We have readily available diagnostic tests including:
- Heartworm in dogs
- FIV in cats
- DNA testing in dogs
- Giardia in dogs
- General Health Profiles
- Diagnostic Health Profiles
- Pre-Anaesthetic Profiles
We are able to use our blood analysis machine to run tests on your pet’s blood prior to having an anaestheic, and to determine things such as kidney, liver or pancreatic problems. This means we have rapid results, so we can start your pet on the correct treatment straight away to start on the way to recovery. For more complicated or comprehensive testing, we have an external specialist veterinary laboratory available six days a week. Most results will be returned to us within 24hrs.
Daisy Hill Vet Clinic has invested in the latest digital radiography facilities. Digital x-rays produce high quality, accurate and rapid diagnosis of your pet’s condition. We can provide same day results.
Ultrasound provides a non-invasive method to look at the structure of the individual organs and then interpreted in light of the x-ray findings. This is preformed by a veterinarian with experience in imaging.
Our veterinarians can organise a referral to specialist services such as Oncology, Dermatology, or for advanced imaging such as CT or MRI. We will provide the specialist with all of your pets history and diagnostics along with the letter of referral, to help your pet with the best standard of treatment.
