We can carry out many laboratory tests at Fairmoor Equine Clinic, to help with the rapid diagnosis of disease conditions and for routine health monitoring.
Blood haematology allows us to analyse the different blood cells present in the sample, which can indicate, infection, anaemia and dehydration.
Blood biochemistry allows us to analyse organ function, muscle enzymes and proteins, and is vital for the diagnosis of many diseases.
We regularly perform faecal analysis and worm egg counts – please bring a coffee cup sized sample to the surgery, and call us in advance if you have multiple samples.
Urine and skin samples can also be analysed on site.
For more complex diagnostic tests such as for Equine Metabolic Syndrome, Cushing’s disease, tapeworm, and for bacteriology and histopathology samples we can also send samples to external laboratories using next day delivery.
All laboratory results will be reported to the client by a vet as soon as they are available.
