El fundador de aquella escuela, Claude Bourgelat, concibio que al estudiar la biologia y la patologia de los animales se entenderia mejor la biologia y fisiologia humana; en consecuencia, tambien celebramos el nacimiento de la "biopatologia comparada".
Fue en julio de 1761 cuando Claude Bourgelat fue autorizado por el rey Louis XV para fundar la primera Escuela de Veterinaria en Lyon (segunda ciudad de Francia).
