Necropsy

The Necropsy section performs post mortem examinations on production animals (porcine, bovine, ovine, etc.), companion animals (dogs, cats, horses, camelids, etc.), poultry, zoo/exotics, wildlife and fish to determine the cause of illness and/or death. The section also evaluates tissue samples and other specimen types submitted to the laboratory for diagnostic evaluation. The necropsy section works with the other laboratory sections at the VDL in cases where additional testing is needed, helping owners and veterinarians determine underlying causes and contributing factors to animal illness and death.
