Welcome to our area dedicated to exotic species.


We established our Exotic Animal practice a few years ago in collaboration with the International Zoo Vet Group (IZVG).

The expertise gained by our collaboration with IZVG has given us the breadth of knowledge to support exotic animal practices. This is a longstanding relationship which has enabled our in house pathology team to develop their skills in this area has been mutually beneficial.

This allows us to offer specialised laboratory services and support to these animal groups

In addition to routine laboratory tests we are set up to deal with samples from a wide range of species. Our experienced team are happy to discuss cases. The relationship which exists with IZVG enables us to offer a complete consultative service.



The IZVG website provides detailed information by animal groups.

We work with zoos and wildlife parks and commercial vets who specialise in exotic species. If you need help or advice why not ask your vet to contact us.

In addition to the services offered by NationWide Laboratory Services we can now utilise our gold standard testing provided by our sister laboratory NationWide Specialist Laboratories www.thehormonelab.co.uk who also offer a range of tests.
