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 than when offsite services are used.
By having an onsite laboratory for blood work, we can take blood samples and look for ailments and diseases and make a diagnosis faster. Blood testing can also be used to determine the hydration 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 a 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 prior to collection.
