A new facility for LADDL was completed in 2013 and held its opening ceremony on November 7. The new LADDL is located directly behind the LSU SVM on River Road in Baton Rouge.
In 1973, the LSU SVM accepted its first class of veterinary students. For more than 40 years, we have been dedicated to saving lives, finding cures and changing lives through outstanding clinical and community service, groundbreaking research and educational excellence. Coinciding with our 40th anniversary is our ABC Challenge, a fundraising plan to augment three key programs: (A) advancing cures for cancer, (B) biomedical research and (C) companion animal health facilities and equipment enhancements. Each represents our future, our mission and our service to the community.
