Pathology can be one of the most useful services in a vet's arsenal for discovering potently life-threatening conditions. At Chirnside Park Vet Clinic we have a large selection of in-house tests to evaluate your pet's health.


  • State-of-the-art Idexx Haematology and Biochemistry machines test whole blood and serum parameters for emergencies and pre-anaesthetic checks.

  • Glucose meter to monitor the blood glucose levels in diabetic patients.

  • Refractometer to check total protein and urine concentration.

  • Urine dip sticks to determine urinary infections, diabetes and kidney function.

  • Immulite for Progesterone hormone testing. 

  • Microscopes used for checking various samples, from ear mites to potentially cancerous cells in mystery lumps

  • Tonopen for measuring the pressure in eye to determine the possibility glaucoma or uveitis

  • Ophthalmascope for checking corneal ulcers and examination of the back of the eye.

  • Faecal Floats to diagnose intestinal worm infestations and other intestinal parasites

  • Multiple in-house tests for:

  • Heart Worm

  • FeLV/FIV

  • Canine parvovirus/coronavirus

  • Pancreatitis

  • Feline blood typing

Depending on the case, we also have access to a veterinary-specific laboratory to run our samples for us. These samples include routine blood testing, culture and sensitivity assessment for infections, and histopathologic assessment of potentially cancerous lumps.
