Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes at The Ohio State University Veterinary Medical Center?
Our annual open house gives everyone the opportunity to learn more about animal care and health, as well as the different roles veterinarians play in public health and biomedical research. This year’s open house will be held May 19th from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. (rain or shine) and will include seminars and activities ranging from animal behavior to careers in veterinary medicine.
The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine was one of the first colleges in the country to offer a pet loss support line. This service offered counseling to those who were grieving the loss of a pet. This service is now duplicated at many other universities, as well as private agencies. As a result, the number of clients utilizing our service has decreased over the last several years. An increase in education about pet loss, as well as new available resources, has also led to a decreased need for this service.
