THE IMPORTANCE OF DIAGNOSTIC TESTS
Laboratory testing is essential in order to obtain a reliable diagnosis whenever your veterinarian suspects an infectious health problem within your herd. The analyses provide evidence of the viruses or bacteria in question. Laboratory tests are also useful for monitoring the health status of a herd or to confirm the efficiency of a vaccine by monitoring the animals’ immune response.
