EQ D 01 Hero MB

For more than 30 years, Antech has been a laboratory partner of choice for equine practitioners. Antech delivers the diagnostic information that equine veterinarians rely on whether the horse is a companion, working horse or world-class competition horse.

Core Diagnostics and Advanced Testing: Antech offers a range of core diagnostic testing including profiles for hepatic, renal, neurological, and gastrointestinal disease. Partnerships with other diagnostic laboratories expands testing to include a range of additional services with exclusive PCR panels, infectious disease testing, EPM diagnostics, pre-purchase exam screens, and many more.

Preventative Health Care and Coggins Testing: The Equine Health Program (EHP) is focused on preventative health care for horses. The program includes lab work, FEC and Coggins and is designed to accommodate the scope of horses in a practice from performance and pleasure to senior horses. Early detection of disease can lead to a more successful outcome and a longer healthier life. Coggins testing is accepted through Global Vet Link (GVL), VSPS or the VS10-11 forms. We also offer an exclusive GVL Direct Bill program that will help to streamline your billing. Please consult your equine territory manager for further information.

Endocrine Testing: Antech offers an array of endocrine testing options for PPID, insulin dysregulation (ID) and thyroid disease. Testing is done in-house in most of our laboratories allowing for rapid turn-around time and eliminating shipping costs. See the test guide for further information on test offerings
