Where to send Samples and Forms

Where samples are being submitted for EAE as well as MV/CAE and the testing date coincides, a single sample from each animal is sufficient, but the correct blood test information sheets must be completed for each scheme

In this case, samples should be sent to the centre you normally use. Abortion material from members of the Enzootic Abortion of Ewes (EAE) Accreditation also should go to the local SAC Consulting Veterinary Services or VLA Centre which you normally use.

If not testing for MV/CAE, please send EAE samples to the SAC Consulting Veterinary Services address below.
