Internal medicine examinations

We have extensive experience and high competence within internal medicine, and carries out internal medicine investigations of all kinds. Our laboratory contains the vast majority of tests that a modern animal clinic should have. As we have the opportunity to analyze our own samples, so that pet owners get test results quickly.

Table of contents

Our laboratory:

  • Biochemistry: We analyze a wide range of parameters that tell something about the condition of internal organs such as the liver, kidneys and pancreas.
  • Hormones: We can measure hormones such as thyroxine and fructosamine.
  • Blood gases: We can measure the amount of carbon dioxide and oxygen, and thus the degree of acidity, in the blood. We can measure parameters that tell us which liquid treatment the animal needs. This gives us the opportunity to evaluate and monitor patients thoroughly before and during operations.
  • Hematology: We can measure parameters related to the bloodstream's white and red blood cells. We can also measure the coagulation time in patients with infections, bleeding or rat poison poisoning. We can also measure hematocrit.
  • Urine samples: We carry out a full examination of urine samples, including microscopic examination. We can use a machine to read urine sticks, which gives a standardized and safe reading.
  • CRP og SAA: We can measure acute phase proteins in the bloodstream - this tells us if the animal has an ongoing infection in the body, and can to some extent tell us if the animal has an infection caused by bacteria or viruses.
  • Infectious diseases: We can test for various specific infections such as Lyme disease, Ehrlichiosis, Heartworm, Giardia, FIV/FeLV and Parvovirus.
  • Imaging: We perform X-rays and ultrasounds.
  • Microscopy: We perform microscopy of urine samples, blood cells and tumor cells.
    Cultivation of bacteria and resistance studies can also be done.
