Church Street Veterinary Hospital offers in-house pathology services, including general health profiles, pre-anaesthetic screenings, and specific blood tests to screen for various common diseases, including renal disease, pancreatitis and measurement of the thyroid hormone. 

Our in-house laboratory allows our veterinarians to quickly perform these diagnostic tests to achieve an accurate and rapid diagnosis. This is especially important in very ill animals and those requiring immediate or emergency treatment.

Some more specialised tests may need to be performed by an external veterinary laboratory. External laboratory results are usually obtained within 12-24 hours for blood results or up to 14 days for biopsy results, depending on the nature of the test being performed.
