With the recent additions of wildlife veterinarian Dr. Chris Foggin and laboratory technician Trish Pritchard, VFWT has managed to expand the capacity of the VFWT laboratory. The facility is now able to perform veterinary histology and pathology functions as well as many serological tests. Donations of key equipment have also allowed VFWT to set-up PCR for the use of screening for a range of diseases. Plans are currently underway to add on a cold room facility. In the next few months VFWT will achieve full registration with the Zimbabwe Veterinary Council. This is very exciting as the range of work that can then be carried out will be unique in that we will be one of a very few fully registered veterinary laboratories in Zimbabwe.
