Laboratory

Our in-house laboratory at our North Shields hospital is fully equipped to run blood samples (haematology, biochemistry and electrolytes), urinalysis, and assess dermatological samples such as skin scrapes.

We also perform some specific tests in-house, such as those for feline retroviruses, canine parvo-virus, and pancreatitis. We use an external laboratory for more complex tests, with a daily postal service to obtain results as soon as possible.
