Our veterinary diagnostics

We offer you various analyses around the health of livestock animals in our accredited testing laboratory. 

 

Metabolic analyses help to detect problems in husbandry and feeding management early. Important information on energy metabolism, acid-base balance, mineral metabolism and the supply of trace elements as well as vitamin balance can be obtained. In addition, fertility and calf management as well as the feeding status of the herd can be checked.

Udder health analyses pregnancy analyses for cows, goats and sheep, as well as parasitological and bacteriological examinations (including faeces, Cleaning and disinfection swabs, nose swabs, cubicle quality) are indispensable tools in animal health management.
