Laboratory Diagnostics – including In-House IDEXX Laboratory Machines

A lot of information can be gained by examining an animal, but sometimes we need to dig deeper. Whether to investigate the cause of an illness, or for routine screening, we offer a full range of laboratory services between our in-house analysers, and our reference laboratory.

 

Laboratory Diagnostics for animals at First Vets Whanganui

The advantage of our in-house laboratory services are same day results! Many diseases that don’t show outwardly can be picked up in their early stages. Then, appropriate management can be initiated to improve quality of life for your pet. Some of the parameters that can be tested include kidney and liver function tests (including pre-anaesthetic tests), thyroid hormone measurement, electrolyte levels and SDMA for early detection of kidney disease.

We also offer urine diagnostics with our new Sedivue machine able to detect crystals and bacteria therefore alerting us early to any potential problems.

New to our suite of diagnostic machines is the Procyte blood analyser that analyses blood cells, giving a picture of the health of both red blood cells and white blood cells.

As well we have in-house tests for canine parvovirus and feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) and feline leukaemia virus (FeLV).

Other tests include diabetes monitoring (blood glucose levels) and blood pressure monitoring.
