COLUMBIA — MU plans to open a veterinary cancer center in the St. Louis area.

The university said it bought a building in Wentzville that will house a Mizzou Animal Cancer Care clinic. It is expected to open next spring.

The center will diagnose and treat dogs and cats that are referred by their regular veterinarians.

University officials hope the new center will make cancer treatment more convenient for pet owners in eastern Missouri, southeast Iowa, southern Illinois and Kentucky. Those people currently would have to bring their pets to the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital in Columbia.

The Wentzville building previously housed a human radiation oncology service.
