The seed for the establishment and growth of TANUVAS was sown as early as 1876 when the Madras Veterinary College was started as an Agricultural School in Chennai to supply diploma and certificate course within the field of veterinary and animal sciences. The institute attained the status of a university within the year 1903 (01.10.1903), when it started working at Dobbin Hall, Chennai, and admitted 20 students for a three-year diploma course called GMVC (Graduate of Madras Veterinary College).

Based on the advice of the Royal Commission on Agriculture, the school was upgraded to impart a degree in veterinary science.
