Clinical Pathology Department

The clinical pathology department designed to give advanced training in veterinary clinical pathology and laboratory medicine to veterinary student and MS of clinical chemistry. We have two objectives for our training program. The first objective is to train DVM student to be outstanding clinicians who are well-versed in all aspects of clinical pathology (hematopathology, cytopathology, clinical chemistry, laboratory management, and applied clinical pathology research). The second objective is to inspire and encourage trainees to become academic researchers who will contribute to the advancement and future of veterinary clinical pathology. The Clinical Pathology Laboratories include the clinical Biochemistry, cytology and hematology laboratories and Clinical Services Lab that available to all veterinarians, is located within Veterinary Teaching Hospital. These laboratories provide routine blood analysis and other diagnostic service and professional laboratory expertise to the Veterinary Teaching Hospital, departments and research laboratories within the college, and for our referring veterinarian clientele. Samples from multiple species are analyzed daily using automated equipments. We have a variety of tests to offer like complete blood cell count, chemistry analysis, urinalysis, coagulation profiles, blood gas analysis, crossmatch, endocrine testing and cytologies. We are able to analyze samples from multiple species, including domestic animals (canine, feline, equine, ruminants, etc.), zoo animals, avian and reptiles, and wildlife. In addition to diagnostic services and specimen analysis, the clinical laboratories provide valuable case material for teaching veterinary medical students and preparing DVM and MS students for residency in veterinary pathology, clinical pathology, internal medicine, surgery, etc.
