As is our pathology so is our practice – William Osler 

Learn about SVP

SVP is a relationship-based, pathologist-directed, client-focused veterinary laboratory.

Pathology Done Right

SVP is passionate about changing the
relationship between practitioner and lab.


SVP is a relationship-based, pathologist-directed, client-focused veterinary laboratory. Our connection with our clients and their patients are the primary focus and foundation of who we are. We are loyalists- with a focus on cultivating and nurturing a long-term relationship with your team. Our pathologists are available to discuss current cases, providing you with the best information to treat your patients. 

We care for your patients

SVP’s purpose is the antithesis of a quota, volume-based lab. Often “good turnaround time” is at the expense of good pathology. We believe that it is possible to provide accurate and high quality pathology in a short period of time. The samples we receive are extension of your client and patient. We consider them every step of the way, creating a bridge between the clinical experience and pathology. We are always striving to improve our turnaround time, and we refuse to sacrifice quality.


Working with you

Communication, empathy, efficiency and collaboration are touchstones for reenvisioning pathology and what it can do for your practice. At the core of what we all do is the immeasurable value of the human/animal bond. Our goal is to have both practitioner and pathologist working together, operating from a holistic approach to achieving the best possible diagnostics and treatment for our patients. Our roles are critical in each others business and practices. Let’s change the narrative of what pathology is.


SVP cares about the sustainability of our relationships with our clients, our coworkers, and our environment. We implement environmentally friendly laboratory practices, and focus on maintaining and building strong, healthy relationships with each other and our clients. Our laboratory is certified by Envirostars, and we are very excited about our new solvent recycler, which will allow us to reduce the amount of waste chemicals we generate. 

Serving the U.S. and Canada

SVP receives samples from veterinary practices all over the United States, Canada, and beyond. We provide courier service for our local clients, and are often able to provide discounted shipping rates for clients that are not local.
