Besides its activities in teaching and research, the Small Animal Clinic is actively involved in patient care: about 20,000 dogs, cats, and exotic animals are treated there every year. The Small Animal Clinic has 16 divisions including surgery, cardiology, dermatology, and dentistry. The Animal Hospital has a station for dogs and cats, an intensive care station, and a separate station for animals from shelters. The inpatients are cared for around the clock.
The clinic has an in-house pharmacy, as well as a blood donor service for dogs and for cats. Outside its regular office hours, the clinic provides a 24-hour emergency service, where animals with sudden life-threatening diseases can be treated.
The clinic has an advanced radiation therapy device available for use with small pets which, among other things, makes possible the precise irradiation of tumors.
