The Rijks Veeartsenijschool (State Veterinary school) was founded in 1821. This was the first veterinary school in the Netherlands.

This clinic was built just outside Utrecht on the water’s edge of the Biltse Grift, around a hundred years ago. Since then, an entire residential area has been built around the Kliniek voor Kleine Huisdieren (Small Animal Clinic), but it used to be surrounded by fields.

In 1925, the Rijks Veeartsenijschool became part of Utrecht University, and later part of the Veeartsenijkundige Faculteit (Faculty of Veterinary Medicine). In 1988, the faculty moved to De Uithof, where it is still located today. The other buildings of the Rijks Veeartsenijschool were given new purposes.  Nowadays, the former Kliniek voor Kleine Huisdieren accommodates various businesses, institutions and apartments.
