At Harradine and Associates we have a full onsite veterinary laboratory capable of performing blood work and chemical analysis. Laboratory services provided are at reduced cost and speedier then when offsite services are uses.
By having an onsite laboratory for blood work, we can take blood samples and look for common and uncommon ailments and diseases and make a diagnosis faster. Blood testing can also be used to determine the dehydration status, degree of anaemia, infection and challenged immune system , physical stress as well as metabolic conditions, such as tying up and stress in a horse.
Please check with your vet as there are an number of factors that can influence the accuracy of a blood test, like the time the sample was taken and whether the horse has been worked at time of collection.
