Veterinary Diagnostic Services

A lab table is shown in the center of a room with all sorts of equipment. The room is located in at the Veterinary Diagnostics Lab.

NMDA’s Veterinary Diagnostic Services Division conducts diagnostic analysis of animal specimens from veterinarians and agencies to determine the cause of deaths or to identify diseases. These specimens range from a tube of blood or piece of tissue to a large animal. Our pathologists and in house scientists work together with the New Mexico Department of Health’s Scientific Laboratory Division (located in our same building) and subcontracting labs to fulfill our mission.

Mission Statement

“To provide accurate, timely diagnostic support in the pursuit of animal disease diagnosis for the citizens of New Mexico, including the livestock industry and veterinary profession”.
