Veterinary Diagnostics:


Our histopathology laboratory, formerly known as Bridge Pathology, forms part of the Veterinary Pathology Group as a highly dynamic laboratory providing histopathology and immunohistochemisty services to the veterinary community. We offer a full range of services ranging from cases received from our colleagues in general practice, to cases from almost all referral practices in the UK and Ireland.

We have a full range of histopathology services:

  • Our team of professional clinical pathologists are able to provide an average turnaround of 24-48 hours for our histopathology services and this includes a full ECVP/ACVP style pathological description and clinically targeted comment provided for every case.
  • We are able to derive the greatest amount of clinically important information from the biopsy samples that are submitted to us by providing full light microscopic characterisation of tissues.
  • For all tumour submissions, we provide full evaluation of surgical margins and we were subsumed in developing the ACVP recommendations for biopsy evaluation that are considered ‘gold standard’ pathology practice.
  • We routinely grade soft tissue sarcomas, mast cell tumours, pulmonary tumours, urinary bladder tumours, mammary carcinomas, intestinal adenomas, endoscopic biopsies, multilobular osteochondrosarcomas and lymphomas.
