The OVC Teaching Hospital offers medical and surgical care for small and large animals, while training future veterinarians in a challenging clinical environment. We are a major window to the community for OVC and the University of Guelph.

Primarily a referral hospital, we treat approximately 16,000 companion animal, equine, domestic farm animal and exotic species each year. Our field service also provides primary care for ruminant and swine clients on farms throughout the region.

The teaching hospital is at the core of our college, providing learning opportunities as well as advancing the field of veterinary medicine through clinically-based research and clinical service. We provide experiential, small-group learning that epitomizes the goals of the University of Guelph.
