The Department of Large Animal Clinical Sciences provides quality teaching, research, extension, and service missions of the College in the primary areas of equine health, production animal (food animal) health, aquatic animal health, and companion animal health.
Large animal research at UF is conducted under strict federal and university regulations to ensure the most humane care and welfare of all of our animals. Many of our animals live here for several years and participate in non-invasive studies before they are adopted out or sold to loving homes. All of our animals are maintained on a routine preventative health care program and live on pastures with ample shelter. We sincerely appreciate the essential role of our animals and they are provided exceptional attention and care by all of our staff.
Large animal research is critical for new advances in diagnosis and treatment of diseases that can affect animals and sometimes even people. When you support the University of Florida’s Research Programs, you are a contributor to the health and wellness of large animals.
