Patient Care

Patient care at AVC’s Veterinary Teaching Hospital is second to none. A team of Animal Health Technicians, Agricultural Assistants,  Animal Care Attendants  and other animal care specialists provide round-the-clock animal nursing care and husbandry services to support clinical veterinary care in the Veterinary Teaching Hospital.

Agricultural Assistants and Animal Care Attendants maintain high standards of cleanliness in clinic and barn areas and, among many other responsibilities, ensure special feeding instructions for all animals are strictly followed.

Animal Health Technicians, each specialized in a particular area, provide animal nursing care to hospitalized animals, carry out treatments, monitor animals, and assist veterinarians and rotational students in normal day-to-day procedures in the clinic.
