Referral Laboratories and Tests

Referral testing has been temporarily suspended due to decreased staffing associated with AHDC COVID-19 operations. To assist our AHDC clients in sending this testing directly to the appropriate labs, we have created a list of referral testing and lab contact information. Please contact our Veterinary Support Services team with additional questions by calling 607.253.3900 or emailing vetsupport@cornell.edu.

The table can be sorted by each column and the search field can be used to find specific items.
