Veterinary care for all pets
"A lot of people don’t have a way to pay for vaccines, but we can bring our pets to the UC Davis Knights Landing Clinic. This way our little animals are healthier."
~ Santos, Jonathon and their dogs Popeye and Olivia
New treatments for animals
"An FIP clinical trial saved our kitten and now she wants to conquer the world. We feel so fortunate that the research at UC Davis is changing the outlook for cats like Lily."

Eliminating environmental toxins
"Veterinary medicine has been critical in documenting the role of environmental exposures that can affect human development and increase the challenges that can be experienced by autistic individuals. Importantly, these studies have identified exposures that we, as a society, can begin to eliminate, thereby reducing many of these challenges for so many affected people."
~ Leonard Abbeduto, Ph.D. Director, UC Davis MIND Institute
Increasing educational access
"I have seen first-hand how poverty prevents families from seeking animal care. This experience motivated me to become a veterinarian to help not only animals in need but also families."
~ Marianna (High school student)
