“I am honored and excited to take on additional responsibilities at TVMDL,” said Fielder. “The clinical pathology section has always offered excellent service to our clients and we will continue to do so.”
An experienced clinical pathologist, Fielder is a Diplomate in the American College of Veterinary Pathologists. In addition, Fielder is a member of the American Society for Veterinary Clinical Pathology (ASVCP) and the Brazos Valley Veterinary Medical Association.
