Update on necropsies at WADDL Puyallup (AHFSL) and Saturday shipment charges
Temporarily, WADDL Puyallup (Avian Health & Food Safety Laboratory) does not have a pathologist on site to perform necropsies at our location. During this time, we will send our clients’ birds and rabbits to the board certified veterinary pathologist at the WADDL Pullman laboratory for this service.
During normal weekday operations from Monday to Thursday, our laboratory will absorb this extra shipping cost. However for submissions on Friday require delivery to Pullman on Saturdays, there will be an additional shipping cost of $32 to cover the additional shipping cost of Saturday delivery.
