Veterinarians in recent years have come to realize that certain laboratory facilities are almost a necessity for accurate diagnosis of many disease conditions. The laboratory findings serve to supplement clinical symptoms, thereby leading to a more intelligent diagnosis. With a microscope and other laboratory equipment definite diagnosis may be established in cases which lack conclusive clinical symptoms. Only the more practical features of interest to a practicing veterinarian will be discussed, although there are numerous ramifications possible in a fully equipped clinical laboratory.
