North Dakota Vetrinary Diagnostic Lab

Pathology

The Pathology section provides complete postmortem examinations on whole animals and histopathologic evaluation of surgical biopsies and tissue samples collected from field necropsies. Diagnostic service is provided by three board-certified anatomic pathologists who coordinate and provide interpretation for cases which also involve testing in other section laboratories such as bacteriology, virology, molecular diagnostics and parasitology. The section is supported by a postmortem floor veterinary technician and histotechnologist.
