In Clinic Lab Work

At the clinic we are able to run a urinalysis (urine test) for your pet. This involves getting a urine sample from your pet most commonly by the “free catch” method which means using a container to collect a sample as your animal squats or cocks their leg to urinate.

A urinalysis is used to help to diagnose or keep an eye on a range of conditions most commonly cystitis,  bladder infections, bladder stones, kidney disease and diabetes.

In-clinic cytology is used frequently to help diagnose tumours, lumps, skin problems (e.g. mange, ringworm, infection), examine urine or faecal samples, blood samples and check for parasites.

Immediate glucose testing for diabetics or hypo glycaemic patients .

Full in-house laboratory service (ABAXIS) and backup at Gribbles laboratory  close by with courier collection twice a day,this  means  faster results than even your own DHB provides.

Friendly pathologists provide advice to help with results and pinpoint problems found in your pets.

If you have an Emergency with your pet during our closed hours please see under Services  page   for a list Emergency clinics in Auckland.

Please do not go to the emergency clinic if it is not urgent/life threatening. ( Runny eyes/nose , coughing , limping , itching & etc can wait until the morning to be seen by our day vet )
