Small Animal Community Practice

The Purdue University Small Animal Community Practice provides veterinary care to pets of Tippecanoe county residents as well as faculty, staff and students of the Purdue University West Lafayette Campus. We strive to provide high quality primary small animal veterinary care to our patients emphasizing communication, education, and service to our clients. At the same time, we operate a model of private small animal practice to allow veterinary and veterinary technician students to gain experience in primary veterinary care and client communication. We care for dogs and cats as well as a variety of other pet exotic animal species such as ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, gerbils, degus, sugar gliders, hedgehogs, lizards, snakes, birds, fish, etc.
