Many laboratory methods are performed directly at our clinic. The most common diagnostic procedures include microbiological, haematological and biochemical tests. We can perform these tests not only on dogs and cats, but also on rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, rats or exotic birds or reptiles. If it is necessary to send a sample to a specialized laboratory, we will collect the clinical material and take care of its delivery.
In microbiology, the microscope is our truest friend. With its help we can diagnose many mycological agents of skin diseases, protozoan parasites or worm eggs in faeces. However, macroscopic ectoparasites such as fleas, lice, mites, ticks, roundworms, velvet mites and others, which we can deal with with the help of a magnifying glass, are often responsible for skin problems in animals.
Blood smear examination
|Detection of blood-parasites
|4Dx SNAP test (heartworm, Lyme disease, ehrlichia, anaplasma), FeLV/FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus and feline leukemia), FIP FAST test (detection of antibodies against feline coronavirus, which causes feline infectious peritonitis).
Skin, hair and feather examination
|Detection of skin parasites, dermatophytes, yeast and bacterial infection.
|Detection of yeast and bacterial infection, ear parasites.
|Detection of intestinal parasites.
Haematology and Biochemistry
At our clinic we perform hematological and biochemical blood tests on demand. It sounds like science fiction, but high-quality analyzers actually allow us to know the results within 20 minutes after collection.
Biochemical blood examination
|Total blood profile, preoperative examination, liver and kidney markers, ion status
Hematological blood examination
|Morphological examination of blood elements, determination of blood properties
|Immunochromatographic detection of cardiovascular disease markers
|Immunochromatographic detection of canine pancreatitis markers
Biochemical urine examination
|Semi-quantitative urine analysis with diagnostic strips
In addition to biochemical determination of pH, leukocytes, glucose, proteins, hemoglobin and urobilinogen, we also focus on microscopic examination of urinary sediment.
|Determination of urine density
Microscopic examination of urinary sediment
|Detection of uroliths or blood
An examination of tissues or fluids that evaluates the structure and appearance of cells.
