Our team includes experienced board-certified veterinary specialists, internists, and highly skilled veterinary technicians and staff. Our emergency team is well prepared to handle all types of soft tissue, orthopedic, and reproductive problems, and we work together to deliver the highest possible standard of veterinary care to your patient.
Our faculty excels in managing patients requiring major surgery, illness, or trauma as well as those patients needing other specialized care. These patients are hospitalized in a well-equipped intensive care unit, and their care is augmented by our ability to consult with a variety of Cornell clinicians representing nearly all veterinary specialties. This combination of excellent facilities, service-specific expertise, and access to leading minds in all specialties allows us to provide a level of critical care necessary for animals in crisis.
