Avian Submission

Live Birds

Submit 4 to 5 live, sick birds that are clinically affected with the condition.

Take care not to select cull birds from the flock which do not represent the disease condition.

Live birds should be delivered personally rather than shipped.

VDL Chicks

Dead Birds

Submit 4 to 5 dead birds that have recently died of the condition, preferably refrigerated and kept cold until they arrive at the laboratory.

Time is important as small carcasses decompose quickly.


It is important that all animals submitted to the Minnesota Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory are accompanied by completed submission forms and a written case history.
