Cornell University’s Emergency Service provides initial evaluation and care of patients with acute illness and injury and ongoing care for critically ill or injured companion animal, exotics, and large animals 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our team is comprised of experienced, board-certified, veterinary specialists, dedicated residents and interns, and highly skilled veterinary technicians and staff. All work together toward the common goal of delivering the highest possible standard of compassionate veterinary care to ill or injured animals, while educating the veterinary practitioners and veterinary specialists of the future.
More specifically, on the large animal side, Cornell’s emergency team is well prepared to handle all types of soft tissue, orthopedic and reproductive problems. Our faculty excels in managing patients requiring major surgery, illness, or trauma as well as those patients needing other specialized care.
Once admitted to the Critical Care Service, patients recovering from major surgery, illness, or trauma as well as those patients requiring positive pressure ventilation or other specialized care are hospitalized in well-equipped intensive care units, and their care is augmented by the emergency criticalists’ ability to consult with a variety of onsite clinicians representing nearly all veterinary specialties. This combination of excellent facilities, service-specific expertise, and access to leading minds in all specialties allows us to provide an exceptional level of emergency care.
