BUCKEYE FOOTBALL HOME GAME TRAFFIC AND HOSPITAL ACCESS CHALLENGES
While we truly appreciate your choosing the Ohio State University Veterinary Medical Center for your animal’s emergency care, to ensure your animal can receive timely care, we ask that you please consider alternate, local quality care providers during Buckeye Football home games if at all possible.
Access to the hospital is challenging due to road closures and one way traffic patterns up to 90 minutes before and after each game.
If visiting us during these hours is unavoidable, we ask that you please call ahead so that we can alert the police and attempt to get your and your animal here as quickly as possible.
Your animal’s welfare is of primary importance to us.
Buckeye 2021 Home Game Schedule: Games typically last 3 to 3.5 hours, with road closures and one-way traffic patterns during the 90 minutes leading up to the game and up to 90 minutes after the game ends.
