At our veterinary practice in London, we have a wide range of diagnostic equipment and procedures, which helps us reach a diagnosis or reassure you that there are no significant underlying problems. Keep reading to find out about some of our available tests!

Blood Analysis

Our blood analysis technology includes a suite of equipment such as the latest hi-tech haematology and biochemistry analysers. This can give us information on your pet’s metabolic health, including liver, kidney, pancreatic, thyroid and adrenal function, electrolyte balance and their immunological status.

Our analysers provide the fastest and most accurate information available in first opinion practice and we can even provide same day blood test results for your pet’s diagnosis.

Urine Analysis

With urine analysis, we can measure a number of parameters including concentration, glucose, protein level, pH levels ,the presence of blood and markers for infection. All of these measurements allow us to diagnose or monitor conditions such as diabetes, kidney failure and urinary tract infections.

In addition to general urine analysis, we can also examine urine sediment under the microscope to check for the presence of crystals. This is particularly important for cats, in order to prevent urinary obstructions.

Blood Pressure Measurement

Blood pressure measurement is an increasingly important area of investigation, particularly for older cats. In some cases, an increased blood pressure can be the first indication of incipient kidney, thyroid or heart disease.

The equipment in our suite allows for rapid, non-invasive and accurate assessment of systolic and diastolic blood pressure, so we can reach your pet’s diagnosis effectively.

Infectious Diseases

At Kensington Veterinary Care, we can test for a number of common infectious diseases to help with your pet’s diagnosis including feline leukaemia virus, feline immunodeficiency virus, canine lungworm, giardia and leishmania.
