Blood coagulation evaluation (PT, aPTT)
To assess blood clotting function, especially important to evaluate prior to surgery to anticipate and prepare for potential uncontrolled bleeding during surgery.

Urine analysis
Vets see urine as liquid gold! Urine gives a lot of information on your pet's health. It's concentration alone indicates hydration status and helps with identifying early kidney disease. Blood, urine, protein, glucose, crystals and bacteria in the urine can also be found to indicate your pet's kidney and bladder health. Did you know that about 10% of dogs have a bacterial bladder infection (UTI) without showing any abnormal signs in urination?

Stool / Faecal analysis
Analysis of stools is commonly used to diagnose parasites such as worms living in the intestines. While these parasites may cause signs such as diarrhoea, soft stools or blood in the stools, many pets also live with these parasites in them while having completely normal stools and no other abnormal signs. We recommend a stool analysis at least once every 6 months.

Microscopy work
E.g. For ear swabs, fine needle aspirates, skin scrapes, etc.
