Labs listed by state:
Good information, thanks.
Not fair though! How come some states get 2 labs and some get NO labs? None in NH, VT or MA, 1 in NY way over in Ithaca. My options would be 6 hours to Ithaca or 4.5 hours to Storrs, CT.
You could claim VT doesn't get one because it is a small population state, but MA with 6.8M people?? CT is only 3.6M.
No need to drive to a lab... just call the lab and ask for their FedEx account number and overnight the deceased. This thread shows how to make send one:
Not sure why some states have more labs than others, or why some states don't have labs. Some states (Maryland?) do inexpensive out of state necropsies. Some states have grants in place for people that can't afford them. I think it was Purdue or maybe Cornell that will do them for free if you can't afford one.
