In 1876, Cornell was the first university in the United States to award the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree.  Ranked the number one veterinary college in the nation by US News & World Report consistently since 2000, the College’s strength is due to its strategic breadth of focus areas and its depth of expertise in each of those areas.

Consistent with its mission to advance the health and well-being of animals and people through education, research, and public service, Cornell has affiliated with Belvoir Media Group to produce the respected monthly newsletters, CatWatch and DogWatch.
