Laboratory Testing

Newcastle Equine Centre offers in-house diagnostic testing including haematology, biochemistry, markers of acute inflammation (Serum amyloid A) and faecal egg counts. Analysis of joint fluid, abdominal and chest fluids, respiratory washes and fine needle aspirate cytology are able to be processed quickly to assist in a quick diagnosis. Post mortems and investigation of equine abortion are available and can be essential in determining a cause of death or limiting infectious causes of foetal/foal loss.
