With board-certified specialists and a nationally recognized faculty, Auburn provides a comprehensive range of veterinary services for your animal at the level only rivaled at a university medical center.
Cutting-edge animal health care, clinical trials to develop new, safe, and effective treatments, and the most advanced training availble to veterinarians, benefit not only the residents of Alabama, but our nation and our world.
Strong relationships with referring veterinarians foster the very best care for both patients and clients. Challenging cases that require comprehensive diagnostics, imaging or therapies are sent to the hospital by your family verinarian. This relationship ensures that animals receive the benefit of the latest clinical trials, research and treatment protocols available.
