Small Animal Primary Care

Providing full-service primary veterinary care to pets

Purdue University Small Animal Primary Care provides full-service primary veterinary care to pets, 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 exotic animal species such as ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, gerbils, degus, sugar gliders, hedgehogs, lizards, snakes, birds, fish, and more. Purdue staff and faculty are eligible for a 10% discount on most services received.
