Bloodwork: we always take blood after a clinical examination, we store the serum (frozen) for six months. On request we can sent bloodsamples for health screening / drug testing / import and export purposes to accredited laboratories we work with, like WUR/Lelystad in the Netherlands, AML in Belgium and Böse in Germany.

Our advice is to have your own veterinarian contact us upfront the PPE. If, for example, additional X-rays or examinations are required we are happy to perform them on request.
