Just last month, the UQ Veterinary School made the final move to consolidate all its activities at the UQ Gatton campus with the closure of the Small Animal Clinic at St Lucia.

The clinic, previously based in Yeerongpilly, was established at St Lucia more than 50 years ago to provide clinical education and skills to veterinary science students through the treatment of animals with excellence and dedication. The clinic now joins the rest of the UQ School of Veterinary Science at UQ Gatton in the most comprehensive animal research and training facilities in Australia.
Dedicated staff and students contributed to the Small Animal Clinic becoming a remarkable ambassador for UQ and this role will continue through the Veterinary Medical Centre services at the Gatton campus. Clinic staff have been held in high regard by generations of students and clients through their dedication and support in caring for companion and native animals.
