Anatomic Pathology Services

Behavior PicThe Anatomic Pathology Service provides comprehensive professional necropsy and biopsy diagnostic services while educating future pathologists and veterinarians. The Anatomic Pathology Service includes highly-qualified, board-certified pathologists and residents in one of the nation's largest veterinary anatomic pathology residency programs.

We see patients of all types from tarantulas to elephants. Deceased animals are examined grossly and microscopically to determine the cause of death and characterize other underlying diseases. Biopsies are examined to determine the nature of the disease, so that appropriate treatment can be administered. Both biopsy and necropsy cases provide valuable teaching material and advance veterinary medicine by contributing new knowledge of the diseases of animals.
