  About the College

 

Improved and Expanded Facilities Will Enhance Already Impressive Programs in Animal Health, Veterinary Education, and Biomedical Research.

With little fanfare, the MU College of Veterinary Medicine has become an important part of animal health. Clydesdale Hall, the Veterinary Health Center, has become the Midwest’s premier referral hospital for the most challenging of animal injuries and disease. Be it a foal struggling against an infection, a dog hit by a car and suffering painful and life-threatening orthopedic injuries, a cat slowly descending into blindness, or a cow with a mysterious illness that could affect a herd and, thus, a farmer's livelihood, the teaching hospital is the best hope available for 17,000 animals annually.

And while these animals receive the best medical care available, veterinary medical students earn one of the best professional educations in the world. During their careers, these graduates will positively impact animal health and animal owner well being in Missouri and US for decades. Nearby, faculty-researchers are exploring the cardiac affects of exercise, gene therapy that can give sight to animals and people born blind, and new methods to delay or cure the tissue destruction of cancer.

Currently, every square foot of the college and the teaching hospital is being utilized. For the next big leap in capability to occur, existing areas will be need to be updated with new laboratory and classroom space created. $4.6 million is needed to reach this campaign goal.
