The Farm Animal Neonatal Section at the Veterinary Medical Center at Ohio State provides complete state-of-the-art neonatal consultation on farm animal clients (cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, llamas, alpacas and deer).
Full neonatal care service is provided for sick neonates, including IgG testing and plasma transfusion service. We recommend bringing the dam of sick neonates with the patient so that nursing and neonate/dam bonding is not interrupted. A "cria-sitter" service is also offered for continuous monitoring of sick crias, at an additional cost. Sick neonates will typically be hospitalized for approximately 7-10 days, although sometimes longer stays will be necessary.
All cases are examined and treated in a team effort with veterinarians, senior veterinary students and veterinary technicians. Most cases are seen, treated and discharged same day. Average outpatient stay: 2 hrs.
Payment is expected at the time of your visit. Please read our payment policy for complete information.
