Cytologies will not be evaluated at the NDSU VDL from August 15-23. We recommend submitting to a commercial laboratory during this time. Alternatively, NDSU VDL can forward cytology slides on to another AAVLD accredited laboratory for the cost of the test and shipping.

What is this parasitic worm and how is it transmitted?
