Submission Forms & Supplies
Note: Forms are updated periodically. Please always use the latest form for submissions.
VDL submission forms are screen-fillable PDF forms, meaning you can type right into the PDF.
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
If going with option 2, it will be in Google Drive and you MUST download the PDF first and open it in Acrobat Reader to make your edits.
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.

Using and completing forms
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).
