About 100 dogs and cats visit the University of Minnesota’s Small Animal Hospital every day, where they receive state-of-the-art veterinary medical care. Rehabilitation is one of 16 board-certified specialties practiced by 60 veterinary medicine specialists at the hospital. Other specialties include neurology, cardiology, anesthesiology, dermatology and oncology.
“It’s our research mission that really sets us apart,” says David Lee, director of the U of M’s Veterinary Medical Center, which includes the small and large animal hospitals, as well as the satellite equine hospital in Maple Plain. “We’re not just providing veterinary medicine. We’re creating it and teaching it so others can use what we’ve learned here, and that’s the exciting part.”
