Tissue samples submitted by referring veterinarians will be evaluated microscopically by faculty veterinary pathologists with the assistance of residents (veterinarians training to be pathologists). Please review our submission guidelines for submitting samples and more details.

Slide Consultation Service

Slide Consultation Service is offered for those cases in which a second opinion is desired. We recommend submission of 6 unstained slides. The biopsy submission form should still be filled out completely. These cases are always reviewed by multiple faculty veterinary pathologists.
