Plakentia Veterinary Clinic has the proper know-how and infrastructure (human resources, organization and physical infrastructure) pertinent for the diagnosis and treatment of a great number of pathological conditions such as:
Ultrasonic tomography helps to the material taking (cytology, tru-cat biopsy)
from the affected areas of organs and masses. In addition, bone marrow aspiration,
collection aspiration and liquid analysis are also performed in the clinic.
At Plakentia Veterinary Clinic, it is possible to perform transfusions of both total blood and its products. In particular, among the services provided is the transfusion of total blood, packed red blood cells, as well as fresh frozen plasma, while there is also the possibility to transfuse cryoprecipitate and cryosupernatant, upon communication with the Clinic. In addition, the administration of human albumin is also possible.
The transfusion of blood and blood products is always made after the conduction of the necessary compatibility tests (blood types, compatibility tests - crossmatching). The administration of blood and blood products is a process that requires continuous monitoring and check of the animal, both during the procedure itself and within the next 24 hours after that. At our Clinic, it is performed under all the possible safeguards.
The increase in the average life expectancy of companion animals has made the appearance of oncological health disorders in our little companions more and more common. Today, many of these problems can be treated successfully, especially if they are diagnosed in time. A great number of oncological cases can either be treated or be brought under control, ensuring life lifetime extension and good life quality.
At Plakentia Veterinary Clinic, we can make the diagnosis and treatment of a plethora of oncological cases possible. Diagnosis of such cases includes imaging tests such as radiological and ultrasonography exams.
For the conduction of computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging exams, as well as cytological, histopathological and immunohistochemical tests, our Clinic collaborates with specialized centers in Greece and abroad. Thus, there is the possibility to perform specialized tests such as PCR for Antigen Receptor Rearrangement (PARR) and flow cytometry. Therapeutic approach is made with the biggest safety possible and includes both surgical and medical (chemotherapeutic) treatment.
