Our Campus and Our Community

MU’s Veterinary Health Center is a state-of-the-art teaching and medical services facility for companion animals as well as livestock.   Columbia, MO is an ideal location for such a teaching hospital. The population of central Missouri and reasonable proximity to St. Louis and Kansas City provide for a robust small animal emergency and referral caseload. 

MU is a nationally competitive, global university.  Many states fund separate research and land-grant universities, but Missouri combines those roles at its flagship institution. MU is both a land-grant university with a statewide mission of service to citizens and Missouri’s largest public research university.  Mizzou is one of only five universities nationwide that offers law, medicine, veterinary medicine and a nuclear research reactor on one campus. The small animal internal medicine service has a long history of cooperative projects with other university units, chiefly in the School of Medicine.

MU is a national leader in comparative medicine, in which researchers collaborate by sharing discoveries, innovations and treatments for humans and animals.  For more about the College of Veterinary Medicine and our impact on Missouri, the nation and the world, go to:
