The Animal Health Diagnostic Laboratory (AHDL) was established in response to cattle deaths throughout Michigan in 1973 and 1974. The laboratory assisted the state in identifying contaminants to cattle feed.
In 1976, it received its first designated funding for the primary purpose of service to veterinarians and animal owners of the State of Michigan who had a need for laboratory assistance in diagnosis and consultation on animal diseases.
In 2003, the name changed to the Diagnostic Center for Population and Animal Health (DCPAH). The name again changed on June 1, 2017 to Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory (MSU VDL).
