Vets, like doctors, often have to run tests to help identify the cause of an illness or to check that a medication is working properly.
At Maven Vets we have an in-house laboratory at our North Cheam Clinic which means many samples are run here.
For you this means quicker results and quicker treatment for your pet.
However, some tests do need to be sent to an external laboratory for analysis.
