The New Jersey Department of Agriculture (NJDA), Animal Health Diagnostic Laboratory (AHDL) regrets to inform clients of the temporary disruptions in Large Animal necropsy services.

The Necropsy refrigerator (Large animal walk-in) is out of service until further notice.  We are unable to accept walk-in necropsies on animals that would require use of this refrigerator. Such animals include the entire body of large animals like horses, cows, some large camelids etc. 

If you are submitting carcass of a horse or other larger-sized animal, please contact the laboratory, so that we can check if it can be accommodated for necropsy.

The grey/silver refrigerator box (AH- 399) on the loading dock and the refrigerator in the vestibule (L155A) are available for small animal carcasses such as birds, dogs, cats, sheep, goats, small pigs, exotic pets etc. 

Please call the NJDA AHDL (609)406-6999 or email jerseyvetlab@ag.nj.gov with any questions.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

Thank you for being an esteemed client.


Dr. Amar Patil

Director, Animal Health Diagnostic Laboratory Services
