At Vets on Balwyn, we pride ourselves on providing our clients and patients with access to the highest standard of veterinary care. With an extensive range of onsite diagnostic facilities, we can provide a quick and accurate diagnosis which means a better health outcome for your pet in the long run.

Our onsite pathology facilities mean we can take a sample for your pet and get a result within the hour. This fast turnaround is invaluable in instances where early diagnosis means a more positive prognosis and enables our veterinary staff to do their work more efficiently.

Vets on Balwyn can diagnose a wide range of serious health conditions using our onsite pathology facilities including:

  • Pre-anaesthetic blood testing
  • Feline AIDS
  • Heartworm disease in dogs
  • Heart disease
  • Pancreatitis
  • Kidney disease
  • Liver disease
  • Skin lumps
  • Blood disorders

Although most of the standard blood tests can be managed by our pathology facilities, there are some more specialised tests which we send out for external analysis. The external laboratories we partner with are incredibly efficient, so turnaround time is between 24-48 hours. Once we receive the results, we will call and organise an appointment so you can discuss the results with your vet.
