Subject: [ferrethealth] ADV testing no longer done through United?
To: <>

I have some info about ADV testing. The University of Guelph is doing the
same test as United was/is doing. They will accept blood samples from
America. Alicia from Ferretwise and Lisa from Oxford Ferret Rescue have both
taken on the task of finding out the best/most cost effective ways to get
the blood samples across the border and into Canada as well as the legal
aspects (thank you ladies!)

As for the test itself, the university takes the samples EXACTLY the same
way United did/does. PLEASE, do not contact the university at this time,
they have been overwhelmed with calls and have asked me to field calls for
them and forward the paperwork for them until this all cools down a little.
If you are submitting ADV samples or are thinking of submitting them in the
near future, please contact me for the shipping address and appropriate
forms that MUST accompany ANY blood samples.

Vets and shelters, if you are interested in seeing the format the lab gives
the results back in, please let me know and I can forward the lab result
forms as well.

Lisa and Alicia will no doubt post their findings shortly as to how to get
blood to the University as soon as they find the best method.

As always, if you have ANY questions, please fell free to contact me by
phone or e-mail. 416-251-4333
