Clinical Pathology

Clinical pathology involves the laboratory evaluation of blood, fluids or body tissues in order to identify existing disease. Common laboratory tests include blood chemistries, complete blood counts, blood clotting times, urinalysis, faecal tests, biopsy examination, cultures and infectious disease testing. 

At Central Vets & Pets we have invested in an in house blood analyser machine that we can use to provide immediate blood results for your pet.  This machine provides a very comprehensive testing list. 

On occasion additional tests are required and within Palmerston North, we are lucky enough to have two full clinical laboratories for us to refer samples to for diagnosis and interpretation.  These labs provide a same day service for most tests so we are well catered for when undertaking diagnostic blood test for your pet.
