Our on-site laboratory is well equipped with biochemistry, haematology and electrolyte analysers as well as a binocular microscope.
We can perform a wide range of tests and get immediate results, which can be essential for emergency cases, and also allows us to run pre-anaesthetic blood screens (strongly recommended prior to surgery on elderly or sick patients).
The microscope is used for assessment of skin, urine and ear samples as well as analysis of needle biopsies of suspected tumours.
More complicated laboratory tests are carried out at an external commercial laboratory and we have a nightly courier service removing any delay in getting samples to the laboratory.
We are fortunate at Letchworth Veterinary Centre to have an amazing team of committed, talented and enthusiastic staff
