The extremely short shelf-life of blood serum chemistry reagents received by the laboratory continues to be a problem. All bovine sera submitted to this laboratory were tested negative for Brucellosis. On the other hand, outbreaks of Chronic Respiratory Disease (CRD), a malabsorption syndrome and Newcastle Disease played havoc in the poultry industry resulting in severe losses. Other disease outbreaks investigated were a mysterious death syndrome in Kunchen ducklings, Paralytic Rabies in cattle, Bovine Leukosis, Dermal Lymphosarcoma, Canine Distemper and Thallium Sulphate poisoining of birds. Several research surveys are slated to take place in the immediate future
