We encourage our students to participate with the supervision of a veterinarian.

Common Questions

Will you be conducting research on my animal?

We will never include a patient in our research without the owner’s consent.

How do I receive a copy of my animal’s medical record?

Contact Client Relations to request copies by dialing (352) 392-2229. A Client Liaison will indicate the charges for processing the copies of the requested records and a consent form to release medical information will be sent to you to be completed prior to processing your request.
