The Companion Animal Clinic is a modern and innovative veterinary hospital for small animals. The 110,000 sq. ft. building contains state-of-the-art surgical, dental, and intensive care facilities. The hospital is equipped with digital radiography, fluoroscopy, C-arm, 32 slice CT, ultrasound, endoscopy, laparoscopy, and arthroscopy equipment.

A full-service clinical pathology laboratory will open in early 2017. Adjacent to the Companion Animal Clinic is the Equine and Bovine Center, which houses large animal teaching and treatment facilities, and small herds of cattle and horses. The Diagnostic Pathology Center offers a full range of anatomical pathology services, and also contains ample teaching spaces.
