Test results are also available online within 2-3 weeks via the Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory Portal.

Turnaround times

Sometimes samples need to be repeated, either because an assay fails for a group of samples or because the controls for an individual sample were not appropriate, so keep this in mind when considering timing of test results.
