Hospital & Clinic

Veterinary Teaching Hospital

Providing specialized medical care and 24-hour emergency services

Please review the below guidelines in preparation for your visit:

  • Only two clients will be allowed inside per appointment time slot
  • Based on CDC and UGA guidance, all clients, regardless of vaccination status, are required to wear a face covering while at our facility. If you forget to bring a face covering, one will be provided.
  • For clients with health concerns, or for those from a COVID positive household, we will continue to offer curbside service. Please stay in your vehicle and call 706-542-3221 upon arrival for assistance.

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.
