Happy Lab Week! You won’t see your laboratory professionals when you visit your veterinarian, but we are an important part of the diagnostic team. We work with your veterinarians and veterinary technicians by providing accurate test results for your pet and the herds and flocks of our region! This year, the NDSU-VDL also took a more direct role in human health by contributing to the COVID-19 testing efforts in partnership with the North Dakota Department of Health. The health of people, animals and the environment are inextricably linked!
