The VMTH food animal clinic is one of the busiest food animal hospitals in North America. The bulk of the caseload consists of traditional agricultural animals, including beef cattle, dairy cattle, swine, sheep and goats.
The clinic also provides service to nontraditional livestock owners. In addition to in-hospital care, the food animal clinic provides care through its ambulatory service. Ambulatory service is generally restricted to farms located within 50 miles of the Columbia campus.
The production medicine service provides state of the art consultative services to farmers regarding the prevention of disease and impaired productivity. Additionally, the production medicine service assists local veterinary practitioners throughout Missouri by providing emergency consultative and disease outbreak investigation resources for herd problems.
