COVID-19 Update for Veterinary Practitioners
We would like to inform you that we are still open for farm animal surveillance post mortem examinations as per our normal schedule i.e. Monday to Friday except for bank holidays and public holidays.
Requests for post mortem examination of zoo hoofstock, that are susceptible to the same high consequence diseases as the food species, will be received and triaged as normal.
There are only a few categories of non-farmed species which will qualify for immediate examination at this time and the submission form will need to be triaged as usual. For any case that cannot be accepted immediately, animals can be frozen and stored at the vet practice and we will be happy to conduct the post mortem examination at a later date when government restrictions are removed. Please also note that due to the most recent government advice and restrictions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, some of our ancillary laboratories are experiencing resourcing difficulties which may delay lab test results.
We thank you for your patience at this unprecedented time.
How we can help
Whether you are a vet working in first opinion or referral practice, a research scientist or a government vet, we can help.
We provide a competitively priced service for small animal practitioners and referral vets; offering a diagnostic anatomic pathology service, including post-mortem examinations and histopathological assessments.
Our high standards of diagnostic pathology, together with our comprehensive facilities, enable us to handle both equine and a large range of production animals.
Commercial pathology research services are offered to the scientific community. Our academic researchers also welcome the opportunity to discuss collaborative projects.
The digitisation of pathology is growing fast. Our digital slide scanner means we can offer raw slide scanning for enhanced results and also enables us to offer professional development training for vets-in-practice.
