As a result, Oregon is expected to attract hundreds of thousands of eclipse visitors from throughout the world. In anticipation of the significant traffic congestion that is expected, Oregon State University and the Oregon Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory will be closed on Monday, August 21, 2017. Normal business operations will resume on Tuesday, August 22nd. Please plan your testing needs accordingly.

The Oregon Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory (OVDL) is a public-supported facility providing a full range of animal disease diagnostic services to veterinarians, livestock producers, pet owners, and biomedical researchers. We work closely with local, state, and federal agencies, supporting their programs in animal and public health. The Laboratory is a member of the National Animal Health Laboratory Network, providing surveillance and response testing for foreign animal diseases in partnership with the United States Department of Agriculture. We are committed to high quality assurance, providing accurate results in a timely fashion, emphasizing communication between diagnosticians and our diverse clientele, and addressing the changing needs of that clientele.
