Laboratory

Our in-house laboratory allows us to run some blood tests on samples taken from patients. In addition, we work closely with other independent laboratories including the Animal Health Trust to ensure that we are able to offer a comprehensive range of testing and screening options including any tests necessary for the export of horses or for horses being sent to stud.

Another key role of the laboratory is faecal worm egg counts which identify the quantity of certain types of worm in the droppings. This is an essential part of any worming program and is also useful in developing a picture of the overall health of an animal.
