The Bombay Veterinary College (BVC) also known as Haffkine Institute was established in 1886. Bombay Veterinary College was facing serious difficulties in imparting applied training in the field of Animal Husbandry as it lacked a farm of its own. To overcome this handicap a unit has been established at Aarey Colony, where cattle, sheep, goats and poultry in a limited number are maintained.
This serves as a nucleus stock for future development of Animal Husbandry activities in coastal region. A Veterinary Polyclinic has come into existence at Goregaon to cater to the growing needs of animal owners in the Aarey sub-campus of Bombay Veterinary College
