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 students, staff, and faculty are eligible for a 10% discount on most services received.

COVID-19 Procedure Update

As we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, the hospital will continue car side service for check in and discharge of your animal. Clients are required to wear a facemask when interacting with hospital personnel as an added measure of precaution. This follows the state mandate and is important for the health and safety of you and our hospital team. Your understanding and compliance is greatly appreciated as we continue to provide the best care for your animal.
