Welcome Message from the HOD

The Department of Veterinary Physiology came into being in 1964 as a component of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine. It started as the Department of Veterinary Physiology and Pharmacology based on a formal agreement between the Government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). The terms of agreement contracted the Kansas State University to establish a standard Veterinary School to produce qualified Veterinarians, develop programmes for postgraduate training and research in various fields of Veterinary Medicine, train qualified Nigerians to staff and administer the Faculty and advice on facilities and programmes for further growth in physical and academic fields.

In May 2012, a new Department was created from the Department of Veterinary Physiology and Pharmacology. That is, Department of Veterinary Pharmacology and Toxicology; while, the parent Department, retains its original name, Department of Veterinary Physiology.
