Learn about our Fundraising Campaign

The GI Lab at Texas A&M University provides specialized testing services to help veterinarians diagnose and treat gastrointestinal diseases in dogs and cats.

These tests may help in the management of pets with vomiting, weight loss, diarrhea, loss of appetite, or poor body condition.

All samples must be submitted by a veterinarian. Veterinary specialists in Internal Medicine certified by the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine are available for consultation to discuss interpretation of test results with submitting veterinarians, and their implications for patient management.

We cannot give advice directly to pet owners due to licensure issues.

Holiday Notices:

We will be closed Christmas Day and New Year's Day, but open all other weekdays.

Texas A&M University is closed Christmas Eve through New Year's Day and the GI Lab may have abbreviated hours, although testing received will be still performed and reported. All final results will be available on our website once you log in.

As always, we are not here to receive packages on the weekends and they will sit unattended if delivered on Saturday, Sunday, or on a holiday. Shipping using the US Mail is never recommended due to delays and the university post office will be closed for extended lengths of time over the holiday period.
