On March 17, 2011, H.R.H. Princess Marie of Denmark was in Copenhagen to attend the opening of the Veterinary Teaching Hospital located at the University of Copenhagen. It is well-known that the bubbly princess is an animal lover so naturally she would participate and support this state of the art hospital.
According to the official website for the new clinic at the University of Copenhagen:
When the Faculty of Life Sciences (LIFE) Veterinary Teaching Hospital officially opens on 17 March, Denmark will have one of Europe’s most well-equipped animal hospitals. The Veterinary Teaching Hospital will be a national referral hospital and will strengthen the treatment options for dogs, cats and more exotic pets. The hospital will provide all types of treatment, from standard health checks to complex surgical procedures and will receive animals from all over Europe. It will also house research in animal health as well as being the primary location for veterinary studies in Denmark.
‘With the new animal hospital we have focused on developing specialist sections, operating theatres, rehabilitation areas and other clinical facilities to provide animals with the best possible treatment, regardless of whether your dog needs a vaccination or something more complex like heart surgery, cancer treatment with chemotherapy or a tailored rehab program,’ says Geoff Houser, Clinical Manager.
