Sampling and despatch instructions for the testing of diseases in dogs and cats
Evira carries out various tests related to the health and wellbeing of dogs and cats.
To determine the causes of symptoms and any disease affecting an animal, or if necessary the cause of death, you can send the animal to us for an autopsy. The animal must always be accompanied by a fully completed autopsy covering note for domestic animals.
Samples can also be taken from dogs and cats for serological (antibodies), virological (viral demonstration) and bacteriological tests.
