In the field of marine science, veterinarians work to support aquatic animal husbandry, providing the backbone of animal health to industries and the public. Graduates from OSU’s College of Veterinary Medicine conduct biomedical research, educate the public and work towards diagnosing and ultimately preventing animal diseases.
