Midwestern University, College of Veterinary Medicine, Equine & Bovine Center
Midwestern University’s College of Veterinary Medicine, Equine & Bovine Center is the newest of three facilities that make up the Veterinary Medicine program. The College is the first and only veterinary medical school in the state of Arizona, helping to bring new professionals to a region where there is only one veterinarian per 4,100 animals.
This 70,000 SF teaching and diagnostic facility is a community resource designed to promote partnerships between the University and local ranchers, race courses and zoos. It provides comprehensive veterinary services for all species, specifically larger animals, including but not limited to horses, cows and other large ruminants. The Equine & Bovine Center buildings include large teaching workshops with stalls and paddocks, treatment areas with padded walls for anesthesia/recovery, housing for 20 horses and 20 cows, as well as support structures for shade, feed, bedding and storage. Here University students gain hands-on experience in the correct housing, handling and treatment of various animals throughout their life cycle.
