The University of Guelph's Ontario Veterinary College has received a $5 million, 10-year commitment from Hill's Pet Nutrition to support the creation of a primary care center for companion animals.
The Hill's Pet Nutrition Primary Healthcare Centre will provide veterinary students with a variety of educational experiences, from practical skills development to preventive medicine. Students will learn how to educate clients about the health, nutrition, and well-being of companion animals. Students also will gain experience in new and emerging technology and procedures.
The center is part of the overall redevelopment of the veterinary college and teaching hospital. The Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges, and Universities has invested $9.5 million in the redevelopment.
