At this time the Animal Health Laboratory is unable to accept large animal carcasses for postmortem services. The hoist in our postmortem bay is out of service, and we do not have an ETA on repairs. 

We ask that you contact the AHL in advance if you are in need of postmortem services for any large animals so that staff can determine if we are able to receive at that time.

We will keep you posted on the availability of large animal postmortem services.
