Blood Samples

Blood tests are usually called for if your pet is unwell. They can give us a picture of what is happening internally, how the organs are functioning and also for specific diseases like diabetes or over active thyroid.

For blood tests we would normally recommend that your pet is starved overnight and comes to the Galashiels clinic between 9-10am in the morning.

Blood sampling usually takes 5-10 minutes while you wait. Your pet won't get a cup of tea but likely they will still get a biscuit :)

Our blood samples are analysed by one of the foremost veterinary diagnostic laboratories in the country, which means that your pets bloods are analysed using the latest technology, and also the blood results have the added benefit of being scrutinised by vets which are European specialists in this field.

In short we get the best possible specialist input to help care for your pet.
