 ADDL  is pleased to announce a new method of obtaining laboratory reports.  Any licensed veterinarian or clinician can access completed reports that have been generated from our VisuaLab Information System from any web browser through ADDL’s web page.  In order to have access, we must set up an account for you.  Log onto our website at:


From there you can fill out an online form or download a form to fill out and fax back to us.

In order to protect the privacy of your patients, we are using a security model that grants access based on clinic location.  You will be able to see all the reports from cases submitted by your current clinic location and nowhere else.

We hope you find this service valuable.

In the 4th quarter of this year, we will be implementing a system whereby reports can be automatically emailed to veterinarians and clinicians.  If you are interested using this service, please send me a note at
