With the recent on-site installation of a complete IDEXX blood and urine analyser system Rangiora Vet Centre has defined a higher standard of care for patients whether they are companion ,large or zoo animals. Prompt results are obtained for tests whether they be pre-anaesthetic, senior or well patient screens, or urgent assessment of sick animals. We are priviledged to have our very own system that provides comprehensive and accurate results with printed reports.Only a few specific tests need be sent off to the outside vet laboratories now minimising waiting times.
Real-Time Care allows us to provide results during or soon after outpatient visits so that recommendations for treatment can be provided as soon as possible to relieve owner anxiety and optimise the wellbeing and health of the animal.
In hospital critical care patients can be accurately and repeatedly monitored, some results are as prompt as 10 mins allowing us to tailor treatment to the animals exact needs.
At RVC we also pride ourselves on our in-house cytology expertise that provides prompt answers from samples examined under the microscope.This is especially relevant for cases that have external parasites,infections,skin disease,effusions,growths and allows us to monitor wound healing.
