  • Nicki’s skills are used in the diagnosis of a variety of animal diseases. Samples such as blood, urine, joint fluids, and needle aspirates of masses are examined by Nicki using her special pathology microscope.

    She is able to identify a range of diseases and disease processes in animals. By obtaining and examining samples sooner, correct and successful treatments can be started.With Nicki working onsite in the clinic, alongside our vets, answers to some important and helpful test results can be obtained rapidly (often while the pet is still in surgery).

Nicki not only examines tissue samples, she also interprets the results of a variety of blood tests, and is available to practitioners to have in-depth discussions about diagnoses, further testing and prognosis of individual cases.
