Small Animal Medicine and Surgery

The Department of Small Animal Medicine and Surgery is dedicated to enhancing the science and practice of companion animal medicine through the teaching and mentoring of students, interns, and residents; by providing exceptional clinical services as part of the College’s Veterinary Teaching Hospital; and through advancing the knowledge of health and disease. Small animal medicine and surgery are integral components of veterinary medicine, focusing on the diagnosis, treatment, and surgical interventions for companion animals, primarily dogs and cats. These disciplines encompass a wide range of medical conditions and surgical procedures designed to improve the health and well-being of pets. Here's an overview:

Small Animal Medicine:

Preventive Care: Routine examinations, vaccinations, and parasite control are essential for maintaining a pet's health. Early disease detection and preventive measures are key components of small animal medicine. Internal Medicine: Small animal internists diagnose and treat a variety of medical conditions, including gastrointestinal disorders, respiratory diseases, endocrine disorders (e.g., diabetes, thyroid issues), and cardiovascular problems.
