Caring for All God’s Creatures

Veterinary medicine serves not only animals – from family pets to farm livestock and zoo animals – but also humans in the fight to control zoonotic diseases like Lyme disease and West Nile virus. We provide a broad-based, liberal arts starting point for your studies.
