We have an in house lab with a haematology machine, biochemistry machine and microscope. We can perform urinalysis if required.
We can analyse your horse’s blood and contact you with the results the same day.
The red capped tube EDTA is used for haematology (to detect infection, anemia etc.) and the orange capped tube LI HEP is used for biochemistry (to detect liver, kidney trouble etc.)
For more complex cases we send samples to The Irish Equine Centre in Kildare. We send skin scrapes/biopsies, lung washes and feed samples to the equine centre. We have an excellent relationship with the pathologist in the equine centre and we usually have results
within 48 hours.
