This integrated service, the largest in the state of Texas, is supported by 10 clinical faculty, 2 full-time veterinary technicians, 9 house officers including 1 food animal medicine resident and dedicated fourth year veterinary students.

We support producers and patients both through our state of the art in-house facility and through our Ambulatory Service. In addition to our clinical responsibilities where we provide patient care to our primary and referral patients, our clinicians are also active in other aspects of food animal medicine providing consultation services for producers and veterinarians throughout the state addressing livestock nutrition and disease outbreaks. Our team operates in one of the finest hospital facilities of its kind; clinical faculty, house officers, and students have all of the equipment and space necessary to take the best care of your livestock including processing chutes, tilt chutes, and tables for lameness work-ups, and surgery facilities for all livestock species.
