One of the primary missions of the Texas A&M Veterinary Emergency Team (VET) is providing support for search and rescue dogs, as well as mounted search and rescue units. These specially-trained dogs and horses work tirelessly to save the lives of humans in distress. From pre-deployment examinations to ensuring that injuries and dehydration are identified and treated in a timely manner, the VET serves as an important partner in keeping these valuable search and rescue team members able to tackle the tasks at hand.
