A Message From Our VTH Director

Welcome to the Veterinary Teaching Hospital (VTH) of the College of Veterinary Medicine at Purdue University.  As a center of excellence in veterinary medicine, the dedicated and passionate team at the VTH is committed to providing the best possible care for your animals.  We are respectful of the trust placed in our hospital by the clients and referring veterinarians with every case.  The VTH is committed to excellent patient care, strong communication and a professional client experience with every visit. You can be assured that when your companion or production animal is at the VTH, it is receiving the best care possible.

The VTH consists of a small and large animal hospital along with an ambulatory (on farm) service for equine and food production animals. The majority of our 60 veterinarians are board certified specialists with representation across nearly every discipline at the VTH. An extensive group of technicians, support staff, researchers, and educators are part of the team supporting the needs of all patients and clients.  As Director, I am proud to work with such a committed and caring team.

Our specialists are also committed to advancing the veterinary profession through research.  In addition to providing patient care, many clinicians have active clinical research programs.  Our specialists collaborate with an extensive group of researchers at the College of Veterinary Medicine all committed to advancing global animal and human health and well-being.

As a teaching hospital, we embrace our role in shaping the future of veterinary medicine through clinical teaching and education of veterinary professionals.  In our hospital, we use the latest technology and knowledge to provide excellence in animal care and wellbeing, along with a positive client experience.

The VTH operates as a fee-for-service-enterprise and is dependent on fees for the hospital operating budget and its continual investment in equipment and technology.  Only through your support can we continue to offer the highest level of patient care and clinical training.  Once again, thank you for placing your trust in us and we look forward to hearing from you about your client experience at our hospital.
