CAE testing timescale
« on: October 16, 2017, 11:47:58 pm »
Anyone know what the turnaround time is for results from SAC?
Had goats tested last Tuesday and impatient for results, don't want to pester vet.

If I recall correctly the results came directly rather than from the vet... but I don't know if there's a difference depending on whether you're testing through BGS versus SAC scheme.
Excellence is the result of caring more than others think is wise, risking more than others think is safe, dreaming more than others think is practical and expecting more than others think is possible.

As said usually just over a week, but recent years can be up to 20 days and I have had to resort to email them directly which they then email your certificate pretty much next day. If not come in a couple of weeks ask your vet to contact them or email sac lab directly.Also check your certificate carefully as they have been making heaps of mistakes very unprofesssional, as they have been re typing the certificate instead of stamping and signing negative like they used to thence leaving out crucial information ie  well you no longer have your own vets signature for a start, date plus loads of mistakes. Loads of people this has been happening to since they closed sac inverness and now goes to sac st boswells.

Mine were back within a week, and they were able to email me the report also.
