Connecticut Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory

How to Find Us:


Please note: Client parking spaces are available between the Torey Life Science building / Atwater Laboratory and between the Chemistry building/Atwater building. Five parking spaces are currently allotted to CVMDL clients. For clients who have been to the laboratory before, this is an addition of two spots on the Torey Life Science and Atwater Laboratory side of the Atwater Laboratory.

If you are delivering an animal intended for necropsy or rabies testing, we ask that the animal remain in your vehicle. Please follow signs to the Client Reception area and CVMDL staff will work with you to complete submittal paperwork. Once we have completed the submittal forms we will direct you to the animal unloading area on the Chemistry/Atwater side of the building.
