On-site veterinary laboratory

The on-site veterinary laboratory facilities available at Southill Vets in Wincanton and Gillingham are key in helping our Vets diagnose a range of pet health conditions swiftly.

Our laboratories are well equipped to cater for blood and urine analysis with results available within minutes. We also have facilities for microscopy and faecal analysis.

Being able to produce same-day test results on-site means our Vets can pinpoint a variety of health problems quickly without needing more invasive diagnostic methods. This also enables treatment to begin right away.

External laboratory services

If a case requires more specialised tests, we send samples to a trusted external laboratory via a bespoke overnight courier service. Results are available quickly, often the very next day. Our Vets will then contact you to discuss your pet’s results and plan for the next steps in their treatment.


Other diagnostic aids

Digital X-ray  facilities, endoscopy, and ultrasound imaging are available at both our Wincanton and Gillingham sites also.
