The University of Missouri Veterinary Health Center will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 1:30 p.m., Friday, April 21, 2017, to celebrate the completion of the Large Animal Ambulatory Facility. The Large Animal program strives to provide the highest standard of medical and surgical care to its patients and has served the area, state and region for nearly seven decades. Through the Food Animal and Equine Ambulatory services, VHC clinicians provide care to livestock, such as cattle and goats, and horses, mules and donkeys on ranches and farms throughout mid-Missouri.
The new facility is located adjacent to Clydesdale Hall on East Campus Drive in Columbia, Missouri. It was constructed using funds allocated from the Missouri Senate and House Agriculture Committee to expand the Large Animal Veterinary Medicine Program.
This event is free and open to the public. Parking is available in the parking lot that serves the Large Animal and Equine hospitals, located off Cattle Drive.
