Pathology Services

Toowong Family Vet has a modern inhouse laboratory so that we can conduct on-the-spot blood and urine testing when animals present to us unwell. This means that appropriate treatment can be conducted immediately rather than waiting for test results when your pet's health is declining.

With our inhouse laboratory, we can perform the following tests:

  • Complete Blood Count

  • Full biochemistry, including Total Thyroxine (TT4)

  • C-Reactive Protein

  • Urine Testing

  • Cytology

For more complicated diagnostic testing, we use external laboratory services, including Idexx and QML.

More advanced testing regularly conducted at external laboratoris includes but is not limited to:

  • Histology

  • Culture and sensitivity testing for identifying bacterial infections

  • PCR testing for infectious causes of chronic diarrhoea, anaemia and respiratory diseases

  • Specialist pathologist interpretation of any results if required.
