Northwest ZooPath was founded in 1994 and is a consulting service that specializes in the pathology of non-domestic species. If your practice deals with zoo and wildlife species, laboratory animals, birds, reptiles, aquatic animals, camelids, ratites, ferrets or rabbits, then our service can be helpful to you. We are specialty pathologists committed to staying on the "cutting edge" of the burgeoning literature dealing with disease in these species, and to providing expedient service at a reasonable cost.
