Our Mission
The Department of Veterinary Science conducts innovative animal health research of worldwide importance on infectious and parasitic diseases of livestock, fish and oysters. This research helps assure the continued health, productivity and profitability of these animal industries. Comparative studies of diseases important to both animals and humans are also being conducted. Integrated knowledge gained from these studies and collaborative programs with the Agricultural Experiment Stations, School of Veterinary Medicine, and Pennington Biomedical Center is then disseminated to the public through the faculty’s extension efforts.

This department also offers pre-veterinary courses in physiology, herd health, and diseases of farm animals and poultry. These courses are intended to supplement instruction in animal science, dairy science, poultry science, and wildlife management.
