Submission forms

VDL submission forms are screen-fillable PDF documents located in GoogleDrive.

You have two options to complete a form:

  • Print a blank copy and fill out by hand.
  • Download the PDF and use Adobe Acrobat Reader to view, complete, save, and print the forms. | Download Adobe Acrobat Reader

Note: Forms are updated periodically. Please always use the latest form for submissions.

Not making sense?
Refer to Hints for Navigating Screen-Fillable PDF Forms for more information on completing the forms. If you use Acrobat within your web browser, be sure to use the printer button on the Acrobat toolbar menu to print the form rather than your web browser's print function.

Submission form guidelines

  • The appropriate submission form must accompany each case. A case is defined as single or multiple animals/specimens submitted during a single day, from the same owner, from animals of a similar age and from a similar environment. A case may also include non-animal specimens, such as feed, water, bedding, etc.
  • When sending specimens from more than one owner, fill out a separate submission form for each owner.
  • When sending specimens from multiple animals (same species) belonging to the same owner, provide pertinent information for each animal on the same submission form.
  • When sending specimens from multiple animals (different species) belonging to the same owner, fill out a separate submission form for each animal (species).

Sample collection procedures may vary depending on the type of testing requested and may affect the accuracy of the results. For that reason, in addition to these guidelines, please follow the guidelines for specific tests and procedures listed in our Tests & fees section, as well as any procedures described on current VDL submission forms.
