The Collection of Veterinary History, established in 1980, belongs to the Veterinary Science Library, Szent István University. An organized file of relics of veterinary history was first established in 1937 and had its place in the central building. The storm of World War II. made a lot of damage to it, and spread a significant part of the fine collection.
