The University of Sydney School of Veterinary Science is strongly committed to providing students with a high-quality learning environment. This ensures a strong foundation for a fulfilling, diverse and successful veterinary career. The Animal Donation Program enables us to offer our students the best learning opportunities.
By donating your animal's body to this program you are helping us to provide a valuable resource for the next generation of vets.
The Sydney School of Veterinary Science will use the remains for student education and further research. Your animal, even in death, can make a vital contribution to the training of a skilled and compassionate veterinarian.
Our students and staff greatly appreciate the opportunities this program gives them. We treat all animals in our care with the utmost respect and dignity.
Every animal is potentially suitable for the program.
If you wish to donate your animal's body, your vet will ask you to sign a consent form at the time of your visit. Your vet will also provide a brief medical history of your pet in this form. We need this medical history so we can offer the greatest educational benefit to our students.
Please be assured that the students will not see your personal information.
After euthanasia, University staff will collect the remains. When students have completed their learning objectives, the remains will be cremated. Unfortunately we are unable to provide any reports or medical information following the donation.
We thank you for your consideration.
