How can TVMDL assist you?
Releasing Case Information
The Texas Veterinary Licensing Act prohibits TVMDL from releasing any case information to persons other than the TVMDL Client (Submitter) without prior approval from the Client.
For inquires about available tests, specimen types, test prices, or turnaround times, please refer to the TVMDL test catalog. Clients may search the TVMDL test catalog by a test’s name or test code. Tests can also be found in the catalog by searching for a disease’s common name i.e. Dirofilaria immitis Antigen (ELISA) can be found by searching for “heartworm”. The TVMDL test catalog can be accessed on the homepage or TVMDL Mobile app.
To learn more about submitting samples to TVMDL and to access submission forms, please refer to the Find a Form page. For information on specimen collection procedures, visit the Specimen Collection Information page.
If you’re interested in a consultation with a veterinary diagnostician on testing recommendations, please review the TVMDL Consultation Guide. For more information about TVMDL’s testing services, please call the laboratory that will be performing testing.
