New Jersey veterinary lab becomes more accessible

TRENTON, N.J. -- New Jersey Secretary of Agriculture Douglas H. Fisher recently announced the launching of a new website geared toward veterinarians, as well as farmers, animal owners, animal organizations and universities.

The New Jersey Department of Agriculture’s Animal Health Diagnostic Laboratory website can be found at www.jerseyvetlab.nj.gov. The user-friendly website also includes a mobile site, which provides easy access to the laboratory’s services while in the field.

“The new website makes it simple to find the tests available, whether it involves cows, horses, sheep, goats, poultry, pigs, dogs, cats, wild animals, zoo animals, and even fish,” said Dr. Manoel Tamassia, New Jersey State Veterinarian. “All of the laboratory’s services are competitively priced, as well.”

“The goal of the website is to provide submitters all the information needed to submit specimens and animals to the laboratory,” said Dr. Amar Patil, Diagnostic Laboratory Director. “Another goal is to provide information to all stakeholders about the availability of laboratory services to ensure health of their animals.”
