Bookstore (VBOT)

Side Menu

The Veterinary Bookstore of Tennessee (VBOT) is a non-profit business that was established and is managed by students of the College of Veterinary Medicine. The purpose of VBOT is to give its customers the advantage of bulk purchase discounts and wholesale prices. Because of low overhead, as well as educational and non-profit status, VBOT can offer exceptionally low prices on books and equipment. VBOT is a proud supporter of the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine and is able to both provide student scholarships and donate to many student activities, such as the annual SCAVMA/ALPHA PSI Auction, SAVMA Symposium, and the Chimera (yearbook) – all thanks to your support.
