Dr. Barry Mitzner is recognized as one of today's experts in the field of in-house laboratory testing. After receiving his DVM degree from the University of Georgia in 1975, Dr. Mitzner entered a group practice in Miami, FL where he became interested in the area of in-house testing. Vetlab Supply was born out of Dr. Mitzner's recognition that veterinarians needed a specialized source for in-house laboratory products.
In addition to overseeing the operations of Vetlab Supply (formerly Southeast Vetlab), Dr. Mitzner plays a key role in new product development, most recently a line of proprietary products bearing the Vetlab name.
