Penyelidikan mengenai kesihatan haiwan-haiwan kesayangan (eg. Kucing, anjing) dan haiwan rekreasi (eg. Kuda), mesti diperjuangkan oleh Fakulti Perubatan Veterinar kerana kita mempunyai kekuatan dan kepakaran dalam bidang ini, seperti yang lain, kerana kita satu-satunya hospital pengajaran Veterinar  di Malaysia, yang menyediakan bahan kajian yang diperlukan.

Output penyelidikan akan berkhidmat kepada industri veterinar teman haiwan Malaysia yang amat memerlukan sokongan itu. Mereka secara semula jadi melihat kepada Fakulti Veterinar UPM untuk mengisi jurang besar maklumat mengenai penyakit di Malaysia. Penyelidikan memberi tumpuan kepada diagnostik bertambah baik, terapeutik dan kebajikan, yang akan memberi kesan positif kesejahteraan haiwan-haiwan dan manusia, memandangkan hubungan yang amat rapat antara kedua-duanya.

Sorotan Penyelidikan:

Strongest Faculty in Malaysia in the area of companion and recreational medicine and surgery, with strength and number of researchers in this area, with multidisciplinary backgrounds, for conducting research that will impact the companion and recreational animal industry positively.

A vast and varied number of companion and recreational animal clinical cases/research material available right within the Faculty, from the University Veterinary Teaching Hospital, which also receives referral cases, and the equine clientele that support the research.

Availability of high-end equipment and facilities at the University Veterinary Hospital for ultrasonography, CR radiography, endoscopy, and faclities such as surgery suites, patient monitoring systems and blood chemistry machines.

Availability of current research funds, although of modest amounts, that have already initiated research and results in these areas.

Availability of interested collaborative partners from Industry (international companies such as Merial, IDEXX) and international established universities (UCLA, Davis, Colorado University, Murdoch University, National Taiwan University).

Researchers have a strong rapport with those in the companion and recreational animal industry in Malaysia, including through MOUs (Royal Terengganu Equestrian Stables) and consultations (DBKL equestrian unit) and this will further foster collaborative efforts in research.

Excellent support staff from the University Veterinary teaching Hospital that can work with as collaborators with researchers.
