The small animal side of our veterinary teaching hospital operates very similarly to a human specialty referral center. Each medical field listed below has its own team of doctors and nurses. These teams have received advanced training in managing and treating diseases within their area of specialty, which allows them to offer you expert advice and advanced treatment options for your pet. This is also why many of our small animal services require a referral from your primary care veterinarian before you can make an appointment. While each of our services do operate independently, they also work collaboratively together, consulting with one another to ensure all of your pet’s medical needs are met.
