Clinical Pathology Services for Comprehensive Pet Care at Goodna Vet
Welcome to Goodna Vet, where we prioritise the health and well-being of your beloved animal companions. Our commitment to providing top-notch veterinary care includes a specialised branch known as Clinical Pathology. This vital discipline involves a meticulous evaluation of blood, fluids, and body tissues to detect and diagnose a wide range of existing diseases, ensuring the best possible outcomes for your pets.
At Goodna Vet, our experienced team of veterinarians are well-versed in the intricacies of clinical pathology. Through advanced laboratory techniques, we can uncover underlying health issues that might not be immediately apparent during a physical examination. By utilising cutting-edge equipment and techniques, we're able to perform various crucial laboratory tests that include:
Blood Chemistries: Our comprehensive blood chemistry analysis provides valuable insights into your pet's internal health, helping us identify any imbalances or anomalies that might indicate disease.
Complete Blood Counts: By analysing the different components of your pet's blood, we can gain a comprehensive understanding of their overall health, enabling us to catch potential issues early on.
Blood Clotting Times: This test assesses your pet's blood clotting abilities, which is especially important in surgical and emergency cases.
Urinalysis: Our detailed urinalysis helps us evaluate kidney function, urinary tract health, and the presence of any underlying conditions.
Faecal Tests: Through faecal analysis, we can detect parasites, infections, and gastrointestinal disorders that may affect your pet's well-being.
Biopsy Examination: Our skilled veterinarians perform precise biopsy examinations to diagnose conditions at a cellular level, guiding appropriate treatment strategies.
Cultures and Infectious Disease Testing: We're equipped to identify infectious agents and tailor treatments accordingly, safeguarding your pet's health.
Swift Diagnosis for Optimal Care:
At Goodna Vet, we understand that time is of the essence when it comes to diagnosing and treating illnesses. That's why our state-of-the-art animal surgery is outfitted with an in-house laboratory, enabling us to conduct rapid diagnostic tests. This capability is particularly crucial for critically ill animals and those in need of immediate or emergency care.
In-House Testing and Beyond:
Our in-house laboratory services allow us to obtain results within minutes, enabling us to make timely decisions about your pet's health. While most tests can be conducted internally, there are instances where specialised tests such as certain blood tests might require collaboration with external veterinary laboratories. Rest assured, we always choose the option that offers the most accurate and efficient diagnosis for your pet's well-being.
Timely Results, Comprehensive Care:
We understand the anxiety that comes with waiting for test results. Our team strives to provide you with the information you need as swiftly as possible. While some blood tests might have results available within 12-24 hours, more intricate tests like biopsies could take up to 14 days due to their intricate nature. However, rest assured that throughout this waiting period, we remain dedicated to keeping you informed about your pet's progress.
At Goodna Vet, we're not just a clinic – we're a partner in your pet's journey to better health. With our specialised Clinical Pathology services, cutting-edge equipment, and compassionate team, we're here to provide your furry family members with the best care possible.
