Fountain Report Excerpts
  1. Boehringer Ingelheim reported 2023 net sales of 25.6 billion euros, up 6%, according to the company’s recently released annual report. Animal health segment sales of 4.7 billion euros were up 3.5%. The full report covering highlights from last year is available on Boehringer Ingelheim’s website.
  1. Clemson University’s board of trustees has approved the school’s doctor of veterinary medicine degree, the university announced. As the first and only veterinary medicine college in South Carolina, officials say the program will address a critical shortage of large- and small-animal veterinarians. In the program, students will complete three years of pre-clinical training and a fourth year of clinical training under a distributed model. This system allows students to participate in clinical clerkships at veterinary hospitals and zoos throughout South Carolina and the region.
  1. Two bills that would have cleared the way for a new school of veterinary medicine at Murray State University in western Kentucky have failed to advance out of committee in the Kentucky Senate, BloodHorse reports. The bills would have allowed Murray State to offer doctoral degrees required to become licensed in veterinary medicine. No university in Kentucky currently has a veterinary school. A joint resolution in the Senate has been proposed in which the Council on Postsecondary Education would conduct a feasibility study on expanding postbaccalaureate program offerings at comprehensive universities.
