Vets behind Pershore Railway Station

Being a huge animal lover myself I have stood there many a time with my credit card out saying "Do whatever is necessary" But who were the first vets? We go back to Urlugaledinna, “an expert in healing animals”, who lived 5000 years ago in Mesopotamia. Then we fast forward to 1761 and the founding of the first veterinary school in Lyon. In Britain things began with a resolution passed by the Odiham Agricultural Society in 1785 to promote the study of farriery upon rational scientific principles. From this came the foundation of the London Veterinary College in 1791. Over time expertise spread from horses to cattle and other livestock, then to dogs and now to companion and exotic animals.
