In-House Laboratory Equipment
At Penrose Veterinary Group, we have the latest in house laboratory equipment and can run a multitude of different tests.
As pet owners ourselves, we understand that waiting for test results can be an anxious time, and in emergencies we need to have rapid access to accurate results. That’s why we have invested in the latest analytical equipment – in most cases we are able to discuss your pet’s results, and their implications, with you the same day.
Of course, due to the specialist nature of some tests, on occasion we may need to send samples to an external laboratory. Depending on the tests required, these results can take between 24 hours and two weeks to come back, but rest assured that we’ll always share them with you as soon as we can.
We’re pleased to say that we can now add progesterone testing to this list, an in house test which we aim to have results to you within an hour.*
If you are planning on breeding from your bitch, then measuring progesterone levels is an easy and reliable way of gauging the optimum time to mate.
The cost of the test is only £70 and includes an appointment with a nurse to take the blood, the test itself and interpretation of the results by a veterinary surgeon to advise you on the next steps required.
If you would like to book an appointment for a progesterone blood test, please do call us and make an appointment before 12 midday.
*while we will always endeavour to produce results within one hour, during extremely busy periods this may not always be possible, however, same day results are guaranteed.
