Auburn Lab Welcomes Avian Pathologist, Dr. Carey Laster

Dec 20, 2018
The Alabama Veterinary Diagnostic Labs have a staffing update. This fall we were thrilled to have Dr. Carey Laster join the staff at our Auburn lab as our Avian Pathologist. Dr. Laster's experience and knowledge have provided valuable contributions to our lab system since his arrival. Dr. Laster performs postmortem examinations on birds at our lab, orders and interprets tests, and provides a diagnosis for all avian microscopic slides we process in our lab system. Dr. Laster is a 1992 graduate of the Auburn University, College of Veterinary Medicine. Following receiving his DVM, Dr. Laster was in private mixed practice for one year prior to joining Tyson Foods from 1993-1994. Dr. Laster returned to Auburn University for an Anatomic Pathology residency and Master's Degree, under the mentorship of Dr. Fred Hoerr. After a one-year position as an Instructor at the AU-CVM, Dr. Laster served as a pathologist at Mississippi State University. Before returning to his alma mater this year, Dr. Laster was the Avian Pathologist at Murray State University, Breathitt Veterinary Center from 2001-2018. We hope Dr. Laster will be with us for many years to come!
