Large Animal Hospital Visiting Hours and Policies

* All visitors must check in at the front desk prior to entering clinical areas.


Visiting hours are by appointment daily between 10 a.m. and 7:30 p.m.

Visiting hours are limited to enable our veterinarians and technicians to assess and treat patients in a timely and appropriate manner. Due to privacy concerns, you will only have access to your animal and information about your animal.

  • Visiting in the wards is at the discretion of the technician in charge.
  • Visitation to isolation cases is limited to viewing from outside the stall area.
