Veterinary Teaching Hospital Expansion

Since its completion in 1987, the Veterinary Teaching Hospital has experienced incredible growth in cases due to the increased demands for veterinary services across the world. To address this need, VA-MD Vet Med has plans to launch an expansion of the hospital to create modern, world-class teaching and clinical research spaces that will advance knowledge through patient care.
