Pet A Palooza: Pet Health
The University of Minnesota Veterinary Medical Center (VMC) at the College of Veterinary Medicine has served the community for more than a century. Now, the VMC is one of the largest veterinary medical centers in the country and is internationally renowned for its specialty care and commitment to advancing animal health.
It is the most advanced, full-service specialty hospital for small and large animals in the region with 60 board-certified specialists in 15 specialties providing team-based care tailored to each patient.
At the VCM, your collie can see a cardiologist, your Dalmatian can see a dentist, or your Newfoundland can see a neurologist or a dozen other specialties under one roof. Our large animal specialists provide the same care for horses and other large species at the VMC or the college’s new Leatherdale Equine Center.
Researchers across the college and university work closely with the VMC to drive the future of veterinary medicine, offering access to cutting-edge diagnostic and treatment options for your pet not available elsewhere.
The VMC’s Emergency Service is available 24/7 and its new Animal Trauma Center provides the expertise and resources to handle the region’s most serious animal emergencies. Supported by a full-service intensive care unit, onsite blood bank, advanced imaging capabilities including MRI, Clinical Pathology Laboratory, and rehabilitation services, the VMC is a truly unique resource in the Twin Cities and beyond.
