Veterinary & laboratory services
Our leading experts provide support to clients in areas of animal disease, diagnosis and surveillance.
SRUC Veterinary Services provide disease surveillance and analytical testing via our Veterinary and Analytical Laboratory and our network of disease surveillance hubs situated throughout Scotland. We provide national veterinary disease surveillance for the Scottish Government and collaborate with APHA to support statutory disease control schemes. SRUC’s Veterinary and Analytical Laboratory based in Pentlands Science Park on the outskirts of Edinburgh processes over one million animal and material samples each year.
The SRUC Veterinary Services team are experts in animal disease diagnosis and surveillance. Close links with research and development activities within SRUC and in several other academic and research institutions ensure that our UK, EU and international clients benefit from practical support coupled with expert scientific advice.
We run a suite of services to support clients that include vets, farmers and pharmaceutical companies by providing diagnostic testing for farm livestock and companion animals, cattle, sheep and goat health schemes, livestock health planning, an equine health scheme, veterinary CPD and external quality assessment schemes.
