A large number of blood tests can be performed accurately and many results are available within 15 minutes. For example:
- Blood count (10 parameters)
- Biochemical tests to evaluate function of several body organs such as the liver, kidneys and pancreas.
- Urine tests (crystals, special urine gravity, glucosuria etc.)
- Hormonal tests, electrolytes, cytology, biopsies, cultivation, microbes susceptibility tests, are carried out by a specialised veterinary laboratory.
Laboratory tests are an essential tool for accurate diagnosis of any disease and the correct therapeutic approach.
