By taking blood samples, we can thoroughly asses the health of your horse. This will ensure the diagnosis is correct and the treatment is exactly right for them.
The blood system has a very delicate balance and is often the first part of the body to change when illness strikes.
In severe illnesses, regular blood work can help monitor response to treatment so we know immediately when it’s time to change our plan.
Franklin vets has an in-house blood machine which means rapid results on blood tests, often within the hour. Time is crucial in horses and the sooner the treatment is initiated the better.
We also offer performance panels for the horses that aren’t performing as normal. Blood tests can check what we can’t detect on examination including muscle changes and electrolyte imbalances.
