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.
