Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory
The AzVDL provides accurate and timely diagnostic assistance in animal health to veterinarians, animal owners, university researchers, and state and federal agencies. The submission of specimens through practicing veterinarians is encouraged, but specimens are also accepted from owners. AzVDL works closely with the office of the State Veterinarian, USDA A.V.I.C., Arizona Game and Fish Department, and other state and federal agencies. This laboratory serves a diverse client base with submissions of wild animals, exotic zoo animals, pet animals, horses, and food producing animals.
