We have a range of up to date in-house diagnostic machines and services that assist our team to quickly diagnose a range of medical conditions and allow us to monitor critically ill hospital patients. For more complex cases we send samples to specific laboratories for specialist pathologist opinion. Our pathology services include the following:
Biochemistry, Haematology and Electrolytes
We have a range of different health profiles which include biochemistry, haematology and electrolytes which can be run in our in-house pathology machines. These provide us with accurate and fast results regarding your pets red and white cell counts, kidney and liver parameters, level of dehydration and more.
Fine Needle Aspirates (FNA) Cytology and microscopic examination
Culture and sensitivity
We see a wide range of parasites in companion animals. At Grafton vet clinic we have the facilities to investigate potential parasite issues and can readily perform skin scrapes, blood smears, faecal floats and plucked hairs etc. and examine these under the microscope to help us to make a diagnosis.
