Vetcare is home to a fully equipped laboratory. Tests are performed on site and results are ready within a few minutes making sure that our patients’ treatment is not delayed. That is really important in some cases, especially emergencies.
We offer a wide range of tests:

Chemistry panel: GGT, ALB, ALT, ALP, BUN, CREA, GLU, TP, GLOB, CA, PHOS, TBIL, TCHO, LIP, FRU, Electrolytes (Na, K, Cl)
Serology: Leishmania, DIrofilaria (heartworm), Ehrlichia, Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV)
Stool analysis: Parvovirus, Giardia, Coronavirus
For specialized tests such as biopsies or hormonal testing we collaborate with external veterinary laboratories. In that case results take a few hours to a few days to come back.
