Clinical Laboratory Services
We aim to deliver high quality clinical and research laboratory services with exceptional customer service.
We support our hospital’s veterinarians as well as veterinarians of California, the United States and other countries. Our testing and receiving services are also available to all veterinarians and scientists. We also perform testing for researchers working on special projects and studies, and can work with individuals to tailor specific testing as needed.
Our testing services are comprehensive and accurate. Our faculty group of veterinary specialists includes board certified specialists in Clinical Pathology and Microbiology. Tests take place in several locations where highly qualified and trained veterinary professional staff provide essential, state-of-the-art diagnostic testing with expertise using specialized equipment and standard operating procedures. Accurate result reporting with a rapid turn around time is important to our laboratories and for quality patient care. Laboratory test results help your veterinarian maintain your pet's health and, when your pet is sick, make a diagnosis so that treatment can begin. Early diagnosis helps assure that appropriate treatment takes place quickly.
Our hours are 8:00 am to 8:30 pm Monday through Friday (except holidays, PST). Central Lab Receiving can be reached at UCDVetClinicalLabs@ucdavis.edu or 530-752-VMTH (752-8684).
