    Necropsy, dead animal parts sent to a lab for testing? Your vet. Most labs won't accept stuff like this from lay folks. Vicki

    I do most of mine myself. Hmmm...i guess a degree in BioChem really does help. All depends on what you want to find out.

    Oh someone had triplet abort or premature and she was going to send in one to see what the results are as to why but her vet said $120 didn't know if this was routine or not.

    Around here folks will send/take their animals to WSU, without vet involvement.

    Try to call an Ag-type teaching University. They may have a simple protocol for accepting animals.
    After all, your vet has to send the stuff somewhere, right?

    (WSU would probably take it, but in order to get it there in a timely fashion may get pricey...?)

    Most abortion panels run about $100. A necropsy here, at our State Lab, runs about $40. We deliver them to Little Rock and fill out a form, leave them in a freezer on a dock. Real professional. :really Vets generally tack on an extra $$$.

    One of my calves died when I was teaching at a rural high school. I took the body in, and the biology class did an autopsy. We found out that the calf's back had been stepped on and broken.

    Believe it or not, there were a few parents who had minor fits about it. Luckily, we had a great principal, and he backed up the biology teacher for having a lab class far above and beyond the norm!

    For myself it is cheaper to use my vet, no shipping, no driveing to A&M and we only send parts, parts that she butchers out. She also takes the placenta or blood or kid to A&M herself. Liver I do myself. I would rather pay her, she gets much better service than I do and then pay the lab bill when it is sent. Besides then I am not guessing of what organ or what panel to ask for.
