Advancing Care in a Supportive Environment

Dear Clients and Visitors,

Animals provide unconditional love and enrich our lives, and we know that you want the best for your companion. At the Ohio State Veterinary Medical Center, you’ll find the highest level of professional veterinary medical care, whether your visit is for a well-check, chronic illness, or emergency service.

As a comprehensive referral center for veterinary practitioners, the hospital is an integral part of the College of Veterinary Medicine at The Ohio State University, and is among the largest facilities of its kind in the world, with more than 45,000 animals examined each year.

Our mission is to provide and ensure that farm, equine and companion animals have access to high quality, primary and specialized services in a supportive and caring environment using expert knowledge and state-of-the-art technology.

We offer specialized and routine care for not only companion animals, but for horses and farm animals, including llamas and alpacas. We also care for service animals such as police and guide dogs.

Our faculty, staff and students provide specialized care in such areas as orthopedic and soft tissue surgery, oncology, ophthalmology, reproduction, neurology, urology, gastroenterology, critical care medicine, cardiology, dermatology, canine rehabilitation and sports medicine, radiology, and anesthesiology.

We look forward to serving you in your current or future veterinary needs. Please contact us if you have any questions.
