Part of the SYNLAB Group

As part of the SYNLAB Group, we enjoy the advantages of being part of the leading medical diagnostic services provider in Europe. Being part of the SYNLAB Group also means we are not annexed to the corporate owners of veterinary practices, so we act independently across the veterinary profession in the UK and Europe which enables us to enhance the diagnostic services we deliver.

Together with SYNLAB Group, our focus is customer centric medical excellence. Our vision, to provide actionable diagnostics information for healthier animals.
