Blue Moon, a cria who was born prematurely and treated at the VMC

Spittin’ Creek Llamas and Alpacas brought Blue Moon, an adorable cria, to the VMC when she was born 29 days premature. Blue Moon came in recumbent, with a poor suckle reflex and failure of passive transfer. Upon arrival, she was given a plasma transfusion, IV fluids and a broad-spectrum antibiotic. After receiving intensive care for four days in the Hospital for Farm Animals, Blue Moon was discharged and acting like a normal cria. Her prognosis looks good. Thanks also to Angela Graham, Kristin Bertini, and the Large Animal ICU staff for milking Prominence every two hours to feed Blue Moon.

Now Available! On-Site MRI for Companion Animal, Farm Animal and Equine Patients

As of May 2015, the Veterinary Medical Center’s (VMC) campus location now offers on site MRI services! Although we have had access for the past several years to a 3 Tesla magnet for companion animals (through a collaboration with Ohio State’s Wright Center for Innovation in Biomedical Imaging), this new MRI provides state-of-the-art MRI diagnostics at our Columbus location for companion, farm and equine patients.

The Hospital for Companion Animals provides the most comprehensive, compassionate care for dogs and cats available.  From specialty care areas such as heart disease to cancer, broken bones to skin conditions, eyes and ears to behavioral issues.

The Hospital for Farm Animals provides complete, state-of-the-art medical consultation, emergency, surgery and specialty care services for farm animal patients including cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, camelids (llamas/alpacas), plus deer, camels and other exotic large animal species.

Whether in the field or in our campus hospital location, our equine veterinarians provide state-of-the-art comprehensive diagnostic services and technologically advanced treatment options for all health issues of horses, from minor concerns to life-threatening injuries and ailments.

Our convenient, suburban satellite hospital provides access to the same level of advanced care as our campus location. From 24 hour emergency care to specialty services such as surgery, internal medicine and on site, diagnostic imaging services including ultrasound.
