Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory User's Manual

This handbook has been developed as a general guideline for users of the laboratory. The procedures outlined here are not the only approach to arriving at a diagnosis, but represent a consensus of our staff. These procedures will enable us to do the best possible job for you.

You are encouraged to call or write the laboratory concerning particular services.

It is the policy of the laboratory to work through local veterinarians since they can evaluate client/producer's problems and identify those problems requiring laboratory assistance. Materials should be submitted by, or at the direction of the veterinary practitioner. Results of examinations, tests, and analyses will be returned to the veterinary practitioner for consideration in formulating a diagnosis and recommending action.
