COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update

Dear Valued Clients,

The Diagnostic Services Unit (DSU) will begin a staggered reopening on May 20, 2020.  In the first phase, relaunched services will include necropsies and examination of tissues from field/in-clinic necropsies.  Biopsy and cytology services will not be available in the first phase.  We will contact you when these other services become available.

During this time, you may experience slightly longer than normal turnaround times on cases.

For the safety of all involved, we ask everyone to respect the signage and physical distancing measures put in place when dropping off samples to the lab. In addition, we ask that best practices are used when shipping samples to the lab including disinfection of the outer surface of specimen containers.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during these unprecedented times.  If you have questions, please contact us by phone at 403-220-2806 or by email at dsu@ucalgary.ca

Wishing you and your families health and safety.

Sincerely,

Jennifer Davies, DVM, MVSc, DACVP
