Clinical Pathology

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.

Pathology results may take 12-24 hours to arrive and biopsy results can be up to 14 days, depending on the nature of the test being performed. Ask your veterinarian when to call for your pet’s laboratory results.
