CHANCELL-ING: The Value of Veterinary Medicine in Our Community and Beyond
Davis is an ideal place for those with beloved pets or those who simply love animals. Some furry friends have even become local celebrities, such as Cheeto the orange tabby cat, who roams near the Department of Physics building. Cori, a black Labrador retriever, has become a regular attraction at Aggie sports events, including football and baseball, and even has her own Facebook page.
The animals in our lives are more than pets or livestock. They’re companions and family members. So, it is stressful when they need urgent medical attention. When that happens, we know we can turn to world-class care nearby at the UC Davis Veterinary Teaching Hospital. Now in its 75th year, the veterinary hospital is celebrating its place in our community and planning to expand services.
Their services also include aiding wildlife, exotic animals, aquatic mammals and fish. They are frequently doing research that is at the nexus of animal, human and environmental health.
