In-house laboratory

Clients benefit from a fully equipped laboratory, set up for a wide variety of diagnostic techniques.  Milk samples are tested for clinical or subclinical mastitis bacteria, with preliminary results available within 48 hours. Results are interpreted by our experienced cattle vets to give advice on the best treatment protocols for individual animals.

We also have a somatic cell count machine that allows rapid turnaround for bulk tank results or individual cow/quarter samples. Blood tests (including full biochemistry profiles), faecal samples for worm egg and coccidial counts so targeting correct use of of worming products, and calf diarrhoea tests are among some of the many other tests we can carry out in-house.
