Cavite State University (CvSU) was established by the American Thomasites, as a pioneer intermediate school in 1906. Located just 30 kilometers of Manila, its first teachers were American Thomasites, recruited from the United States Armed Forces. From its humble beginnings as Indang Intermediate School, it became Don Severino Agricultural College in 1964. By virtue of the Republic Act No. 8468, the College was converted into Cavite State University on January 22, 1998.

The Cavite State University is mandated to provide an avenue that will promote the total development of the individuals. Its main task is to prepare its students not just for the life today but for the future.

Cavite State University offered the degree of Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) program in 1997 to strengthen its thrust in the field of agriculture in accordance with the Agenda for Development. Initially, the program was under the Department of Animal and Veterinary Sciences of the College of Agriculture, Forestry and Environment and Natural Resources. In August 2000, the program was handled by the newly formed College of Veterinary Medicine. In 2006, the college was renamed to College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.

The faculty members of the College are graduates from the premier veterinary educational institutions. Most members have finished their graduate degrees. In addition, the faculty members are engaged in full-time teaching, research and extension activities.

Its vision is to be at par with the best veterinary schools of developed nations. Moreover, its mission is to produce morally upright and globally competitive veterinarians and biomedical professionals.

Structurally, the College has two main buildings: The Veterinary Medical Center Building and the Administration-Academic Building, with the former housing the Teaching Hospital and fully air-conditioned laboratories. The Teaching Hospital serves as a venue for students to acquire hands-on experience in disease diagnosis, treatment and control in companion, exotic and farm animals to augment and validate their theoretical knowledge in veterinary medicine, surgery and pathology. Special instructions are given in veterinary therapeutics, pre and post-operative care, diagnostic technique, prescription writing, case recordkeeping, hospital administration and veterinarian-client relationship.

Furthermore, the CVMBS utilized the CvSU farm in teaching farm animal restraint, dosing, preventive management and surgery. The farm also provides CVMBS with experimental animals and specimen for instruction and research.

For medical services, all students enrolling in CvSU are required to undergo physical and dental examinations to determine their fitness to perform various school activities. These examinations are normally conducted in April or May for first semester enrollment and in September and October for the second semester enrollment. They are also required to undergo chest x-ray and blood typing.

Guidance services for students are also provided with focus on students’ felt needs and perspective. Students are assisted to recognize, interpret and act upon their personal strengths, resources, and experiences. Thus, developing individuals with high sense of integrity, leadership, and moral values.

The Student Housing is responsible for the operation and management of dormitories and residence halls that caters to the housing need, comfort and safety of the students . The unit operates two dormitory buildings for men and two dormitory buildings for women. These dormitories can accommodate a capacity of 600 students.

The CvSU runs a system of dormitories for students who opt to stay within the campus. The residence halls aim to promote and maintain an environment wherein the students may realize maximum educational and social advantages.

Aside from the primary function of instruction, the CVM serves as a unit for veterinary research and extension. It has established research and extension linkages with other government and private agencies such as the Manila Jockey Club, Inc., Regional Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory, Paradizzo Theme Farm, Cavite City Botanical and Zoological Park, Philippine Carabao Center-UPLB, Zoobic Safari and private institutions, farms and feedmills. These agencies serve as venues of learning for our veterinary interns and senior students.

The CVMBS takes pride in its high passing percentage at the DVM Licensure Examination. In 2005, the College was awarded as the Top Five Performing School by the Professional Regulatory Commission (PRC). The CvSU-CVMBS has been successful in realizing its goal of producing competent veterinarians.

The Cavite province lies along the southern shore of Manila Bay. It is bounded on the north by Manila Bay and Metro Manila, on the east by Laguna, on the west by the South China Sea and on the south by Batangas.

Endowed with rich offshore and coastal fishing grounds, the province provides a place conducive to both business and leisure. Main attractions include historical landmarks and enchanting scenery such as Aguinaldo Shrine and Museum in Kawit, Island Cove, Caylabne Bay Resort in Ternate, Leisure Park, and other first-class resorts.

Cavite has two pronounced seasons: relatively dry from November to April and wet from May to October.
