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
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
A recent email was sent by TVMDL notifying their clients
that an additional handling fee would be accessed for samples that
are forwarded to the GI Lab from TVMDL effective Sept
To avoid that extra fee you must set up an account
directly with the GI Lab and custom submission forms will be
created for you. You cannot use the TVMDL submission forms for
samples sent directly to the GI Lab. Please email email@example.com for more
information and to set up your account.
