The MU College of Veterinary Medicine is Home to A Wide Range of Research Programs Enhancing Animal Health. The Best May Be Yet to Come
a few years ago, a cat diagnosed with cancer faced a
bleak and painful future. Today, research programs have
identified new treatment options that can not only extend
the quantity of life left to the animal, but maintain
the quality of those years.
Such successes are mirrored across the spectrum of veterinary medicine. Once untreatable blinding eye problems now are routinely cured because of research into new surgical techniques. Dogs with failing hearts now can benefit from the availability of second-hand pacemakers, something pioneered through a MU cardiology research project.
New frontiers have been identified in caring for animals and the emotional health of their owners. MU has been on the forefront of much of this research. With help from generous donors, new projects can be developed to create the next generation of miracles.
