The School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of California, Davis, has resorted to furloughs and layoffs to cope with reduced funding from the state as a result of the recession. The unstable economy also has taken a hit on the vet school's revenues as owners cut back on their spending for large-animal treatments. According to an AVMA report, about $45 million to $50 million in state funds has been pulled from the 28 veterinary schools in the U.S. over the past two years.
