The mission of the Pathology Department at the Angell Animal Medical Center (AAMC) is to provide quality diagnostic services, promote education and professional development, and support the mission of MSPCA-Angell.

Why submit to AAMC Pathology?
Our AAMC Pathology Staff takes pride in delivering rapid and accurate test results in order to contribute to the diagnosis, treatment, management, and/or prognosis of disease in our veterinary patients.  We offer clinically-oriented pathology services.  We take an interest in individual cases, encourage clinical correlates and feedback, and welcome case consultations via phone or e-mail.  Our anatomic and clinical pathologists maintain high-quality service through detailed reports, practical case comments, and competitive turnaround time.  When necessary, we consult other specialists with regards to the more challenging disease processes.  Select cases are reviewed in pathology rounds, allowing open discussion among pathologists, general practitioners, veterinary specialists, residents, interns, and veterinary technicians.
