The California Animal Health and Food Safety (CAHFS) lab in Tulare has resumed their necropsy services in the nearby Veterinary Medicine Teaching and Research Center (VMTRC). The original location of the Alex A. Ardans laboratory (located next door to the VMTRC) has been closed since March, 2023 due to significant flood damage in the basement. Staff expect to be located in the VMTRC for a couple of years while the Ardans lab is undergoing extensive repairs, and thank their clients for patience as they work to restore all services.
