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:
The mission of the rehabilitation section is to rehabilitate injured, ill, or orphaned birds of prey. Annually the Southeastern Raptor Center takes in between 200 and 275 birds of prey from across the Southeast. Birds are generally brought by members of the public, a network of Southeastern rehabilitators and educational facilities, and state and federal agencies.
Initially a bird is taken to the Auburn University Small Animal Teaching Hospital where the medical staff performs a physical exam and assesses stability. If stable, further diagnostics are performed including a complete blood count, radiographs (x-rays), and a fecal exam to check for intestinal parasites. Sometimes birds require further diagnostics such as a CAT scan, a consult with the ophthalmologist, or surgery. When raptors arrive in the evening or on the weekends, they are examined by the on-call raptor team which consists of veterinary students who are interested in avian medicine and who have experience with raptors.
Once patients have finished the course of treatment, they are placed in flight aviaries. Sometimes it takes several months to be ready for release back into the wild. During this time, one or more flight evaluations are performed to determine if the bird can be released. If the birds are non-releasable, the Raptor Center tries to place them in permitted educational facilities, if feasible.
