Portland Vets have in house labs in all of their branches and test blood and urine samples as well as performing microscopy. We use the microscope to look at urine, blood cells, bacteria, fungus and parasites. This allows us to perform laboratory tests with results in minutes! Any more complex testing is done by external veterinary laboratories, the main ones provide couriers to collect the samples enabling tests usually to be run within 24 hours.
The benefit to you, our clients, is that we can make diagnoses quicker, implement treatment plans and your pets can receive the correct treatment sooner.
