We have access to a range of diagnostic services that can assist us in providing optimal care for your pet. Mildura Veterinary Hospital is equipped with an in-house laboratory that allows our Veterinarians to quickly perform some of these diagnostic tests to achieve an accurate and rapid diagnosis. This is especially important in very ill animals and those requiring immediate or emergency treatment. Our in-house laboratory can provide results within approximately 15 minutes. We do also send to external laboratories for analysis of samples from biopsies and blood for more specific testing. We have an in house digital X-Ray and ultrasound services that also assit us to understand any problems with your pet.
