Liphook Equine Hospital Laboratory uses evidence-based veterinary medicine alongside clinical experience to inform our provision of diagnostic tests, and in our interpretation of results from samples from cases.  Our “No Nonsense Guide to Equine Clinical Pathology” is a handbook compiled to assist in the interpretation of reports and is intended to be a quick reference to keep in your car or practice.  It is designed to answer the questions that we are most frequently asked and to tackle areas of common confusion.  It also includes practical tips for submission and interpretation of laboratory samples.

A new version of the hard copy of this Guide (affectionately known as our “Lab Book”) was printed in September 2016.  Please do contact us to receive your new copy (and to obtain further copies for your practice colleagues if you wish) by contacting the lab:

What our clients say


For many years our practice have used the LEH lab for our clinical pathology work. Andy and the rest of his team offer an amazingly efficient, thorough and friendly service. The advice and support they provide is on an individual case by case basis and has proved invaluable many times. This close working relationship makes them feel like the ‘extremely knowledgable’ colleague within the practice!
