The University of Missouri Veterinary Health Center provides state-of-the-art teaching and medical services. In addition to regular check-ups and preventive health care for companion animals and livestock, we feature specialized treatment such as emergency medicine and critical care, soft tissue surgery, dentistry, ophthalmology, neurology, oncology, dermatology, cardiology and orthopedic surgery. Veterinarians throughout the Midwest refer patients to the VHC for specialized diagnoses and treatment. With sophisticated therapeutic equipment, advanced imaging and groundbreaking diagnostic methods, we are a regional center for animal health care.
Clinical services are provided by faculty, interns and residents, technicians and students. Students pursuing the doctor of veterinary medicine degree, as well as interns and residents who are engaged in postgraduate training, actively participate with faculty and staff in each phase of patient care. The result is that patients benefit from the expertise of a focused, communicative clinical team that includes veterinary medical generalists and specialists as well as future veterinarians.
