Chattogram Veterinary and Animal Sciences University (CVASU) is the first Veterinary and Animal Sciences University in Bangladesh which was established based on Veterinary Science. Veterinary science is the branch of Medical science that deals with the health, production and well-beings of animals other than human medical science. CVASU has been offering 5 years long Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) degree including one year internship programme. For a student to fulfill the requirement of DVM degree, practical knowledge based on Veterinary Clinics and field level exposure is imperative to obtain as like as human medical science to obtain MBBS degree.

A Medical College must need well equipped hospital for clinical training of their students and also offers health care services for the people. As such the CVASU has established a teaching veterinary hospital (SAQTVH) to offer public services and to get practical exposures by undergraduate (DMV) and post graduate (MS, MPhil, PhD) students and researchers and on veterinary clinical and extension services. It is operated under the Directorate of SAQTVH and with the support of clinical departments specially Department of Medicine and Surgery (DMS), FVM, CVASU.

Farmers and farming communities; poultry, pet and zoo animal owners are getting clinical services round the year from the SAQTVH, especially rural and urban people of Chittagong city and the farmers of surroundings Upazillas. Besides these, many referral cases are handled at the SAQTVH from the other parts of the Bangladesh for special treatment. Moreover, as a part of extension service, a Mobile / Satellite Veterinary Service (MVS / SVS) have been operated by SAQTVH for teaching the students in the different outdoor stations since 2000. This type of service is still functioning in two different satellite centers: Mojjairtak, Sikolabaha and Kattoli, Chittagong City Corporation

SAQTVH has also been offering herd health services for the local dairy farmers of urban and peri – urban areas of Chittagong City. This service has been especially designed and operated by the Population Medicine Team of DMS with scheduled visit once in a month. This herd health programme covers the health management, calf management, fertility management and finally taught the farmers about benefit of cost analysis of farm. All efforts of veterinary clinical services and extension motivation work of CVASU are done for the well – being of the farming community.
