Ophthalmology Services

Our services are available to patients referred by veterinarians in private practice. To schedule an appointment for your animal, please call our large animal reception staff at 765-494-8548 between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Out-patients should expect the visit to take 1.5 - 3 hours.

In case of emergency, call the same number and tell the operator that you have an animal emergency. The operator will then provide your information to the clinician on call to return your call.

Service hours

Equine appointments: Mondays, 9:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.
