The University of Maine operates the Animal Health Lab as a service to the veterinarians, livestock producers, and animal owners of the state. The lab performs a variety of diagnostic services, including necropsy, microbiology, virology, pathology, and special research support. We offer diagnostic support to clinicians, and assist in finding solutions for agricultural and aquacultural producers using Cooperative Extension resources. Working closely with the Animal and Veterinary Science Department, we integrate students into lab rotations to strengthen their preparation for veterinary and research careers. Through Cooperative Extension, we link with industry to help in the control of animal health related problems in Maine.
Lab hours are 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM, Monday through Friday. No samples accepted after 4:30 PM on Fridays.
