At Vets on Parker, your pet’s health is our priority.  We have all the necessary equipment and facilities onsite at each clinic so that we can find out what is causing your pet’s illness quickly. With prompt diagnosis, we are able to treat your pet faster and get them feeling better sooner.

All our clinics have sophisticated in house blood analysers. This means we can take a blood sample from your pet and receive a result within the hour. Our analysers are invaluable when it comes to finding out what is wrong with loved pets quickly, in addition to performing routine pre-anaesthetic blood tests.

Examples of in-house blood testing:

  • Pre-anaesthetic blood testing
  • Sick pets
  • Feline AIDS
  • Heartworm disease in dogs
  • Heart disease
  • Pancreatitis
  • Kidney disease
  • Liver disease

Unfortunately, our blood analysers cannot perform all blood tests. In these cases we will send your pet’s sample to an external reference laboratory. Most of the time these results are returned electronically to the clinic within 24-48 hours and your vet will call you or ask you to come in to the clinic to discuss the results.
