Extension Office

University of Ilinois Extension provides practical, research-based information and programs to help individuals, families, farms, businesses and communities in Illinois. Its mission, in short, is to help you put knowledge to work.

At the College of Veterinary Medicine, Extension veterinarians coordinate contacts with more than 13,000 consulting veterinarians and members of the animal-owning public to disseminate valuable expertise. The weekly pet columns provide an additional vehicle for sharing authoritative information on animal and public health.
