The primary mission of the toxicology section is to provide toxicological diagnostic testing capabilities and consultations to veterinarians, UKVDL pathologists, county extension agents, livestock producers and pet owners. A variety of toxicological tests are available through the Toxicology section, including tests for metals and minerals; organic compounds including a multitude of pesticides, drugs and other chemicals; biological toxins such as plant toxins, toxic insects, and bacterial and fungal toxins; and numerous other toxicants. Tests can be performed on tissues, gastrointestinal contents, baits, feed, water, soil, and other substances. Consultation services include assistance with appropriate sample collection and submission recommendations, determination of appropriate tests to be performed, interpretation of analytical results, therapeutic advice, differential diagnoses, residue considerations, and other general toxicological information. The Toxicology section is involved in a number of research projects and participates in several student internship programs.
