The first of its kind Teaching Veterinary Clinical Complex has been started by Odisha University of Agriculture and Technology at its Veterinary College premises which will allow 24 hours treatment of animals in the near future. Built at a cost of Rs 6.5 crore, the clinic that has started functioning partially.  “The clinic has been equipped to treat animals of any size. People can bring a small bird or an elephant for treatment,” claimed OUAT Vice Chancellor DP Ray.

“We are still in the nascent stages of development and do not have the sufficient staff to make it operational for 24 hours at a stretch. But required staff will be allotted within the next 15 days. The clinic will then be open for 24 hours, everyday,” added Ray. The clinic at present has one surgeon, one gynaecologist and one medicine specialist.   The clinic has most of the basic equipment needed and plans are on procure more by March next year.  This new clinic will also help the students of the OUAT’s veterinary college to gain their much-needed practical experience.
