Effective February 28th, 2022 – The Purdue University Veterinary Hospital has reopened the reception areas of the Small Animal and Large Animal Hospitals. All clients will be required to wear a mask when interacting with hospital staff.

Our team is committed to providing the highest quality of care for all our clients and patients. In the face of the global COVID-19 pandemic, we are taking additional precautionary measures to support social distancing while providing urgent and emergency patient care.

We remain open for those animal patients most in need and currently are receiving urgent and emergency cases. Though the hospital plans to maintain a level of urgent and emergency services, it is possible that in the future we will have to enact further restrictions to help maintain the health of our community as we continue providing quality care to our patients. We have developed this webpage to address changes and will update it as necessary.

We are committed to being a resource for our community and state during this challenging time and appreciate your understanding.


It’s important to maintain as much physical distance as possible while transferring your animal to the lobby and staff. Additionally, the CDC recommends wearing facemasks when out in public. Click here for information and simple instructions for homemade face coverings.
