Help Support Future Veterinarians
Every student at OSU’s College of Veterinary Medicine, no matter their area of specialization, spends time working with farm animals, both large and small. In this way, OSU is training a new generation of veterinarians who will be ready to battle potential bioterror or pandemic diseases.
You can help support the education and research at the College of Veterinary Medicine through a gift to the Large Animal Medicine Fund or the Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory.
Support for the Large Animal Medicine Fund will help educate future veterinarians by providing state-of-the-art teaching facilities through the expansion of the large animal hospital. The project includes stall space for animal patients, a free standing isolation facility, enhanced imaging facilities, and a covered arena and high speed treadmill for equine lameness evaluation, cardiorespiratory disease diagnosis, and treatment. The expansion is estimated at $10 million, and the college is currently seeking gifts to meet a $5 million matching grant pledged by the Wayne and Gladys Valley Foundation.
Your gift to the Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory will help ensure that veterinarians are well-prepared to tackle the coming challenges by keeping the lab equipped with the latest tools for detecting disease. The only fully-accredited facility of its kind in the state, the Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory provides medical testing services for companion animals and livestock. The laboratory also plays an important local, regional, and national role in monitoring for animal diseases and public health threats, including avian influenza, SARS, rabies, mad cow disease, West Nile virus, and anthrax.
