With board-certified specialists and a nationally recognized faculty, Auburn provides a comprehensive range of veterinary services for your animal at the level only rivaled at a university medical center.
Cutting-edge animal health care, clinical trials to develop new, safe, and effective treatments, and the most advanced training availble to veterinarians, benefit not only the residents of Alabama, but our nation and our world.
Strong relationships with referring veterinarians foster the very best care for both patients and clients. Challenging cases that require comprehensive diagnostics, imaging or therapies are sent to the hospital by your family verinarian. This relationship ensures that animals receive the benefit of the latest clinical trials, research and treatment protocols available.
The College of Veterinary Medicine prides itself in meeting the needs of not only its students, but one of its greatest assets- its employees. Resources available here are aimed at providing a comprehensive guide to meeting employee needs, and include information such as the Student/Faculty Directory, Media Resources, Campus Safety Procedures, IIT, etc.
From the early work of Dr. Charles Allen Cary more than a century ago, to the development of some of the world's most advanced veterinary programs, Auburn has influenced the character and scope of veterinary medicine.
The country's seventh oldest veterinary school and the oldest in the South, Auburn today boasts one of the nation's preeminent institutions for research, teaching, diagnosis, and treatment in many specialties of small and large animal medicine.
All activities associated with students in the professional veterinary degree program are coordinated through the College of Veterinary Medicine Office of Academic Affairs. These activities include, but are not limited to:
Auburn University’s College of Veterinary Medicine will hold its annual Open House on Saturday, April 20, opening its facilities to the public to showcase the variety of professional opportunities available and allow people to learn more about animal care and health.
The free student-organized event, from 8:30 a.m. until 2 p.m., features a variety of educational and fun activities for all ages on the college’s campus, located at 1130 Wire Road.
“Open House is a wonderful opportunity for those who love animals to come and get an inside view of the College of Veterinary Medicine,” said Kris Street, an outreach programs administrator with the College of Veterinary Medicine.
“At Open House, you can come and see both the teaching and clinical side of the College of Veterinary Medicine,” said Ray Wilhite, laboratory coordinator for the college’s Department of Anatomy, Physiology and Pharmacology. “This behind-the-scenes look is something usually not available.”
High school and college students will have the opportunity to talk with counselors about veterinary medicine throughout the day. A special session at 10:30 a.m. in the Overton Educational Wing will cover admission requirements and career opportunities.
Several featured programs will be held on the CVM campus. An educational program featuring birds of prey by the college’s Southeastern Raptor Center will begin at 10 a.m. in the lameness arena by the Large Animal Teaching Hospital; followed by a canine parade of breeds at 11 a.m. in front of Greene Hall. At 1 p.m., a demonstration will be held showcasing dogs trained to detect explosives, also on the front lawn of Greene Hall.
Other family activities will run throughout the day, including the popular Teddy Bear Surgery, where children can help veterinary students practice their surgical skills; a petting zoo and a showcase of exotic animals; bovine and equine display of breeds; pocket pets; face painting; and a paleontology dig.
An informational scavenger hunt will help children learn as they explore exhibits around the college and educational demonstrations will include ultrasound, radiographs, pathology and the anatomy lab.
Attendees are requested to leave pets at home.
