At WHAH we have a full Idexx Vettest unit. This allows for a rapid turnaround on blood tests in-house without having to wait for an external laboratory. This means a sick patient can be diagnosed and treated accurately and quickly, both during normal hours and after hours. Having a Vettest unit means we can offer pets coming in for surgery a pre-anaesthetic blood screen. Having a general anesthetic is a big thing for a pet and their owners. If we can reduce the risk of an anaesthetic by knowing more information before hand, then this makes for a safer procedure. A pre-anaesthetic blood screen checks the internal health of the pet before they have an anaesthetic. If a problem is picked up we may wish to defer the surgery or take extra precautions during the surgery, thus reducing the risk to your pet.
