Veterinary Teaching Hospital

Providing specialized medical care and 24-hour emergency services

If you have a pet or animal that needs advanced veterinary care, look no further than our hospital. We operate similarly to a human specialty medical center and are passionate about offering the best care possible for your cat, dog, exotic animal, horse, cow, goat or other farm animal. Your animal will be cared for by a talented and diverse team that consists of licensed veterinarians (i.e., an intern, resident, and/or a board-certified faculty member), senior veterinary students, veterinary nurses, and hospital staff members. We bring years of experience to each case, and because we are a teaching hospital, we have a vast and highly specialized knowledge base from which to draw answers. We also have state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and offer advanced treatment options.
