If your pet is unwell Dr Katie may suggest further investigation to find out what is going wrong, or to monitor any ongoing conditions.
We can run many of the diagnostic tests available in the traditional vet practice straight from your home! Taking samples can be a lot less stressful for pets but with the same access to a fantastic lab with results from the next day.
Blood tests are available to help diagnose a large range of medical conditions as well as monitor on going medication levels and disease progress.
Blood samples can be taken from many pets in their own home and sent to the lab. Some pets may need more help staying still enough for a sample being taken and a surcharge for a nurse to visit with Dr Katie, or a quick visit to the clinic usually results in a sample being taken with as little stress as possible.
Dr Katie can run the basic urine tests there and then in the consult. For more in depth tests it can be sent to the lab. For any concerns with your pets urine please try and collect a sample prior to your consult.
Faecal samples, ears swabs, skin scrapes and hair samples can all be taken at home and sent to the laboratory for testing.
For more invasive procedures or those requiring anaesthetics your pet would need hospitalisation.
