Clinical pathology involves the laboratory evaluation of blood, fluids or body tissues in order to identify existing disease. Common laboratory tests include blood chemistries, complete blood counts, blood clotting times, urinalysis, faecal tests, biopsy examination, cultures and infectious disease testing.
Paws at Yours uses IDEXX Laboratories for our clinical pathology. Given the mobile nature of our business, lab tests are sent to IDEXX via courier, and results are usually obtained within 1-3 days (depending on the test). Some tests are more involved, and have a longer turn around time. Ask your veterinarian how long your tests will take, but rest assured, we will call you as soon as results arrive.
