The Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food through its Regional Veterinary Laboratory (RVL) network carries out continuous surveillance for exotic and endemic disease conditions in Irish livestock. It provides a laboratory diagnostic service to private veterinary practitioners and farmers. Private veterinary practitioners are welcome to submit animal carcasses and specimens (usually blood, milk or faeces) for diagnostic testing for their farmer clients. Reports are then issued to the veterinary practitioner for interpretation.
The RVL network consists of six strategically located centres:
Laboratory opening hours (except holidays)
Monday-Thursday: 9.15AM - 1.00PM and 2.15PM - 5.30PM
Friday: 9.15AM - 1.00PM and 2.15PM - 5.15PM
Saturday and Sunday: Closed
