Extraordinary Purpose

Our research drives us to push the boundaries of discovery and innovation to advance our understanding of animal and human health. It motivates our partnerships to make veterinary care more accessible and affordable. College research efforts involve faculty members from 25 disciplines working with more than 20 animal species, and continued philanthropy is critical to this important work.


Support innovative research and state-of-the-art medicine today.
