Lab Work and Investigations
There are times when immediate diagnosis is just not possible and tests on blood, skin, faecal analysis (amongst others) may be required to help us ascertain what is causing the problem. Many of these tests can be performed in house at our practice in Walliswood. If we require additional services, we will courier samples to the appropriate specialist hospital laboratory for the quickest turnaround.
When may Lab Work be needed?
Lab work may be required in situations where your horse is losing weight without an obvious cause, suspected worm infection, suspected poisoning, allergies, reproductive tests, skin diseases and so the list goes on. It is not always easy to diagnose an issue immediately but we are best placed to get the correct lab work completed in order to obtain a diagnosis efficiently.
