Faculty of Veterinary Medicine

Veterinary medicine is a scientifically-practical branch, which studies animal diseases, diagnoses them, carries out treatments, prophylaxis and abatement, as well as supervises and prevents illnesses common for both people and animals. It deals with environment protection from pollution, as well as takes care of ethical, esthetical and economical needs of pet and animal owners. Specialists of the branch solve problems connected with maintenance and provision of animal health.
