Capability Statement:

At TU's Veterinary Diagnostic Services, we're dedicated to advancing diagnostic capabilities to ensure reliable and precise laboratory results. Our services, including anatomic pathology, clinical pathology, Bacteriology, Mycology, and Parasitology, play a crucial role in accurate clinical diagnoses and effective therapy. Supporting both research projects and regional veterinarians, we provide essential biopsy and necropsy reports vital for treatment decisions and postmortem analysis. Integral to the Veterinary Teaching Hospital and student training, our laboratory services furnish clinicians with essential in-life and postmortem information. From clinical chemistries to microbiological examinations, we offer a comprehensive suite of tests to aid diagnosis and monitor patient progress. Moreover, our veterinary pathologists provide valuable consultation to bridge clinical observations with pathological findings. For years, TU has extended its diagnostic services to surrounding veterinarians and regional states, offering rapid diagnoses and consultation through our mail-in biopsy and cytology service. This outreach initiative not only supports regional animal populations but also enhances the training of our veterinary and graduate students, ensuring a brighter future for veterinary medicine.


Our Key Components of Diagnostic Services include various specialized labs like clinical pathology, microbiology, histology, and anatomic pathology offering a wide range of diagnostic tests to assess patient health.
