Fibrous Osteodystropy: Renal Failure

For many disease processes affecting skeletal muscle in small animals, routine H&E and histochemical staining of formalin-fixed tissue is sufficient for diagnosis. However, sometimes it is desirable to examine frozen sections for diagnosis of muscle diseases. Please contact us if you are uncertain what tissue to submit or for specific instructions on submission of fresh tissue when indicated.

Please provide a thorough clinical history as well as digital radiographs and/or radiology reports when submitting bone biopsies, digits, or limb amputations. Electronic files can be sent to (include patient name in subject line).
