The Ohio State University and the College of Veterinary Medicine are closely and continually monitoring the evolving Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. As a result, The Ohio State University Veterinary Medical Center hospitals are taking additional precautionary measures by limiting cases being seen to veterinary emergencies, urgent specialty care and after-hour urgent care. No new specialty appointments are being made at this time.
In an effort to ensure a safe environment for all animal owners, visitors and VMC team members, we ask that you please avoid visiting our hospitals if you are currently experiencing flu-like symptoms, including a fever greater than 100.4 degrees and a cough, or if you or someone you have been in contact with have travelled to an affected area within the last 14 days. If your animal has an upcoming appointment, please call us and we will be happy to get you rescheduled at a later date.
Amy and David Taylor bought Jaylyn from a farm in Wisconsin in 2013. During that summer, she was shown at the Kentucky State Fair where she placed sixth in the state within her class and took home the Junior Champion title at their local county fair.
Beginning on the evening of March 2, 2016, as part of our lobby reconstruction, the main entrance to the Hospital for Companion Animals, as well as the client parking lot directly out front of the building will be closed to all traffic and visitors. Non-emergency clients will need to park directly across the street (Vernon L. Tharp) from the Hospital for Companion Animals and enter through the Hospital for Farm Animals doorway. Directional, way-finding signage will be posted along Vernon L. Tharp Street.
Fox28's Good Day Marketplace crew got a sneak peek of the brand new Intensive Care Unit located in the Hospital for Companion Animals.

Spittin’ Creek Llamas and Alpacas brought Blue Moon, an adorable cria, to the VMC when she was born 29 days premature. Blue Moon came in recumbent, with a poor suckle reflex and failure of passive transfer. Upon arrival, she was given a plasma transfusion, IV fluids and a broad-spectrum antibiotic. After receiving intensive care for four days in the Hospital for Farm Animals, Blue Moon was discharged and acting like a normal cria. Her prognosis looks good. Thanks also to Angela Graham, Kristin Bertini, and the Large Animal ICU staff for milking Prominence every two hours to feed Blue Moon.
