        Great forum!

    I’m a veterinary student from Portugal, I’m writting my master thesis about Thoraco-Lumbar Disc Disease, and I would like to know if some one could help me to find some microscopic images with:
    – intervertebral disc with condroid methamorphosis, and;
    – intervertebral disc with fibroid methamorphosis.

    or in books, or in original fotos.

    I’m really grateful to the people who help me.
    Best Regards,

    I LOVE your site! I just discovered it and I can’t get enough. Thank you for putting it together. It’s a great resource!

  8. I am not a vet, but I am a alpaca rancher. Would I be able to submit a necropsy on one of my animals for a discussion? Or would I need permission from the pathologist first?
    I would like to get some opinions on the cause of death.

    • Brian says:

      I have not yet posted anything not examined by myself, however I have received many requests to do so. I may add a category for these kinds of posts in the future. Why dont you email me at vetpathforum@yahoo.com and I can look at the pathologists report.

    I just found your website and find it full of useful information that is well presented! I will send the info around to vet students that I teach (with your permission) and to my colleagues pathologists here in Latvia (I am ACVP diplomate who has fairly recently moved to Latvia). Thanks for excellent path forum!

    • Brian says:
