About Greendale Veterinary Diagnostics
Greendale Veterinary Diagnostics was founded in 1988 and now employs over 20 experienced personnel and consultants who cover a range of experience in all aspects of the special requirements demanded by such diverse groups of species. This provides the high quality service which is essential for such demanding work and which provides clients with accurate and credible results.
Our veterinary staff will be happy to discuss the aspects of the service for which they are responsible.
The service is intended to supply a complete consultative package ranging from differential diagnostic lists, husbandry advice, epidemiology, disease control to therapeutics and on-site training.
Due to a continuing policy of investment in laboratory equipment and personnel, we are able to offer a very flexible approach to the work carried out. If you would like a profile or set of tests tailored to your requirements please contact the laboratory and we will set up those requirements and programme them into our request lists.
The price lists on this site are a guide, rather than being an exhaustive list, and will be modified and experience progresses; please feel free to become involved in its evolution.
We are continuing our commitment to conservation and research projects both here and overseas.
We have been involved in several such projects such as monitoring the Red Kite population that were introduced into the UK, health surveys of Heron in several heronries in the Midlands and Badger surveys in the South East.
We were heavily involved in a project in the Galapagos studying the Giant Tortoise by helping set up a haematology laboratory and teaching local staff in the specialised techniques needed for reptile haematology.
Currently we are involved in the White Tailed Sea Eagle translocation project in Scotland and we are soon to be involved in an Osprey health survey.
We have lately been involved in teaching avian haematology to two veterinarians – one studying the Blue Footed Booby in the Galapagos and the other studying the decline of House Sparrows in the UK.
We still have a strong commitment to continue our interest in exotic species diagnostics and that aspect of our work is increasing as more people keep exotic pets and as Zoos continue to monitor and maintain healthy animals.
