Community Practice Service

Community Practice ServiceThe Community Practice Service at the Cornell University Hospital for Animals offers primary care to dogs and cats in the Ithaca area which includes regular examinations, parasite prevention, vaccinations, routine laboratory testing and spay and neuter surgeries.
