Do you ever feel like the submission form doesn't quite capture what you need to tell the laboratory?  Most laboratories accept digital photos of samples. A picture is worth a thousand words, and a well taken specimen photo can be worth 10,000 words!  While photos can't replace your submission data, photos can really help in diagnosing cases. We interviewed Dr. Murray Hazlett, pathologist at the Animal Health Laboratory in Guelph to get some practical information about how to photograph lab samples in the field.  Dr. Hazlett gives some very easy to implement tips for veterinarians using digital cameras or smart phones.
