Autopsy and Necropsy Services for Pets

Offered by board certified pathologists

After a family pet passes away, the owners are left wondering why, and whether
anything could have been done to save the pet.  Often, the pet owner feels some
responsibility for the death.  A postmortem examination is a very informative
service.  This exam consists of removing, specially processing and
examining the pet’s organs and preserving small portions for
microscopic evaluation by a veterinary pathologist.  The
procedure can provide a wealth of information for both the
pet owner and the veterinarian.
