Gastrointestinal Laboratory

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.
