Sydney Veterinary School
Love pets? Consider vet science at Sydney!

The Veterinary Pathology Diagnostic Service operates within the Faculty of Veterinary Science at the University of Sydney and provides high-quality biopsy and necropsy services to the veterinary profession, servicing the University of Sydney’s Veterinary Hospitals and large private-referral practices. They offer a service that entails a strong review process, with all specimens being reviewed by multiple pathologists, and a personalized interaction with the veterinarian.
Pathologists are readily available for comment on individual cases and can help veterinarians bring their clinical research to publication standard. In addition, the organization offers a high-quality, reliable service to researchers in histopathological specimen processing, immunohistochemistry, and processing of unusual specimens. The highly skilled technical staff are available for consultation about unusual or difficult specimens.
The laboratory has a special interest in histopathology of the diseased eye and has a strong relationship with specialist ophthalmologists.
Monthly ocular histopathology rounds with specialist ophthalmologists supports this activity and allows correlation between clinical and pathological findings.
