    Organisational background

    SYNLAB’s Veterinary Pathology Group (VPG) is a network of responsive labs and expert pathologists across the UK and Ireland comprising VPG|Exeter, VPG|Ringwood, VPG|Hitchin, VPG|Leeds, VPG|Cork, and VPG|Histology (Bristol). The laboratories offer the full range of clinical diagnostic services to first opinion and referral veterinary practices. We are the group of choice for nearly all the veterinary referral centres in the UK and Ireland because of our quality and the accessibility of our exceptional pathologists.

    The group was acquired by SYNLAB in 2017 who recognised VPG’s reputation for exceptional quality and service. SYNLAB is the largest provider of diagnostic services to the medical profession in Europe and has growing international interests. SYNLAB owns further Veterinary Laboratories in Germany and Belgium. VPG represents SYNLAB’s veterinary investment in the UK and effectively works independently across all sectors of the veterinary profession within the UK and Ireland.

    The VPG operates from 6 separate laboratories strategically based around the UK with multiple courier routes servicing each lab.
