At Keysborough Veterinary Practice we have access to a range of in-house pathology services, as well as an external laboratory.
We routinely examine cytology slides in house for ear infections, skin conditions and growths. These samples are generally taken from an awake pet with either a swab or small needle. These slides can also be sent to an external laboratory if a second opinion is required.
We use an external laboratory for specialist histopathological analysis of masses and lumps removed surgically for as accurate a diagnosis as possible.
