Making the Most from Your Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory

November 10, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Making the Most from Your Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory
Each attendee will receive two hours of CE credit

This two-hour talk followed by Q and A will provide a general overview of how best to use an outside veterinary diagnostic laboratory alone or in conjunction with an in-clinic laboratory. Topics include: Hematology: sample collection and hematology overview including histogram interpretation, slide review and breed specific CBC changes; Chemistry/Serology: sample preparation; Urinalysis: preparation of slides for sediment review and urine cytology; Parasitology: direct smear, sedimentation techniques; Microbiology: sample preparation for urine and tissue culture, ear cultures, and a brief introduction to interpretation of MIC; and Cytology and Histopathology: tips on sample preparation including unique challenges such as large samples, special stains, and special needs. Special testing, such as GI function panels, endocrine testing, and infectious disease testing are additional options for the overview discussion. There will be an opportunity to practice making blood and urine sediment slides.

Retirement and Cytology TurnaroundUpdated 10th October 2020

Dear Valued Clients,

Please join us in congratulating Dr. Connie Stevenson on her retirement. As a member of our clinical pathology team since 2007, we know you may miss Dr. Stevenson as much as we will. Her last day will be October 22, and we wish her all the best on her next adventures.

While we work to fill this important clinical pathologist role, some cytology cases may have a slightly extended turnaround time. For urgent cases, please indicate PRIORITY CYTOLOGY on the test request form. We will do our best to accommodate; however, we cannot guarantee all priority requests. There will be no additional cost for priority testing. Please contact Client Services at (425) 355-5252, or toll free at (800) 347-0043, if you have any questions. Thank you for your understanding, and again, please join us in congratulating Dr. Stevenson on her well-earned retirement.
