What samples are collected each year?

EDTA blood, serum, urine, feces, hair and toenails are collected for the biorepository. All the biorepository samples are stored at -80OC until use. Serum, urine and blood are aliquoted prior to freezing. For clinical pathology testing, whole blood in EDTA tubes, serum, urine and feces are collected. These are used to run a complete blood count, serum biochemistry, T4, heartworm antigen, urinalysis and fecal parasite detection.
