The mission of the Department of Veterinary Sciences and Wyoming State Veterinary Laboratory is to provide accessible, timely, accountable, and accurate animal disease diagnostic services; research into animal disease research; and, education to veterinarians, students, and others interested in animal health, as well as the people of Wyoming.

Our vision is to become recognized as a national leader in diagnostic veterinary medicine, teaching, and research.
