Take a Virtual Tour of the Hospital for Companion Animals



The Ohio State University Veterinary Medical Center is the largest and most comprehensive veterinary medical complex in Ohio and the surrounding states. The Veterinary Medical Center is composed of three hospitals – the Hospital for Companion Animals, the Hospital for Farm Animals, and the Galbreath Equine Center. 

Our patient care teams consist of specialized veterinarians, skilled veterinary technicians, interns, residents, and veterinary students completing their four-year training program, all dedicated to providing personalized patient care in coordination with your primary veterinarian. 

We have developed a virtual tour so that clients and potential clients will know what to expect when they bring their beloved pets to the Veterinary Medical Center for evaluation and treatment. We hope that this view “behind the scenes” will put your mind at ease, knowing that your pet is receiving tender, loving care during the entire visit at our hospitals. We want you to focus your time and energy on assisting our patient care team so we can work together to restore your pets to better health.

The Veterinary Medical Center is a non-profit organization that is patient-focused and client-centered. We are also a self-supporting business with more than 90 percent of our operating budget provided by revenue generated through fees for services. Our top priorities are making the world healthier for animals and the families who love and care for them.

We look forward to the opportunity to provide you and your pet with the care and service you deserve and expect. Thank you for taking the time to view this video and for entrusting our patient care team and client services staff with the care of your pet.
