The technicians of the Hospital for Large Animals are well versed at handling multiple different species that are cared for in our hospital.

Our technicians work together with the veterinary teams of residents, interns, and faculty clinicians to provide quality, compassionate, and timely care to all of our hospitalized patients. In addition to our in-house patients, the technicians provide assistance, and urgent care to incoming emergencies along with our teams of veterinarians and veterinary students.
