The Diagnostic Parasitology Laboratory provides basic parasitology services for Penn Vet's large and small animal hospitals. Fecal examinations for parasite eggs and cysts, identification of intact parasites, quantitative fecal egg counts and serology for heartworm and some tick borne infections are all done in our lab in the Matthew J. Ryan Veterinary Hospital.
Hours of operation: 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
We also provide the services above for veterinarians on a referral basis. Please check the hospital's referral brochure for further information or call the lab.
