State-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment facilities

We’re a teaching Hospital

What does that mean for you? Take the case of Fluffy, for instance, a middle-aged dog who was brought to her MVH-affiliated veterinarian for vomiting. After a thorough physical exam is performed at the office, her veterinarian notes that more extensive testing may be needed. Referred to the hospital, Fluffy’s MVH-affiliated general veterinarian would still oversee her case, possibly ordering hospitalization with intravenous fluids, laboratory testing and diagnostic imaging. If necessary, her MVH-affiliated veterinarian could call on the expertise of one or more of the many board-certified specialists practicing in the hospital. Fluffy’s veterinarian is able to offer her superior diagnosis and care because he’s part of a centralized hospital.
