Supporting owners, breeders and their canine companions all year round

The Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine has been a proud partner of the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show since 2019. 

Serving as the show’s official veterinary care provider, we bring together leading canine experts from across our clinical consultation units — including the Cornell University Hospital for Animals (CUHA) and the Cornell Margaret and Richard Riney Canine Health Center (RCHC) based in Ithaca, New York, and the Cornell University Veterinary Specialists (CUVS), based in Stamford, Connecticut.   

Our mission is to advance the health and well-being of animals, while also driving the future of canine-focused research. By investing in innovative solutions to cancer biology, infectious diseases, genetics and other challenges faced by dog owners and veterinary care providers, we are helping dogs live longer, healthier, happier lives. 

We invite you to learn more about our programs and services.
