This laboratory is in the Department of Internal diseases and Pharmacology and is an important link in the overall clinical diagnostic process of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine at University of Forestry. The purpose of the lab is to perform a wide range of paraclinical tests in the development of research topics and research projects of graduate students, professors from universities and other research units. The other main feature is a diagnostic and laboratory studies.

II. Working team
In laboratory work a one associate professor, one chief assistant and a laboratory assistant. In developing research projects that involve students they become part of the working team.
