"Sophie is one of the lucky ones." That's according to veterinarian Cynthia Otto, pointing to a photo of a schnauzer mix amid the festive glow of holiday lights. The photo, taken at an annual veterinary intensive care unit survivors' party, shows Sophie lounging in her owner's arms, greeting another party-goer with a friendly sniff. Just a month before, Sophie had been close to death after being hit by a car.
Penn's School of Veterinary Medicine is one of the world's premier veterinary schools. Founded in 1884, the School was built on the concept of Many Species, One Medicine. The birthplace of veterinary specialties, the School serves a distinctly diverse array of animal patients, from pets to horses to farm animals at our two campuses. In Philadelphia, on Penn's campus, are the Matthew J. Ryan Veterinary Hospital for companion animals, as well as classrooms, laboratories and the School's administrative offices. The large-animal facility, New Bolton Center, in Kennett Square, Pa., encompasses hospital facilities for the care of horses and food animals as well as diagnostic laboratories serving the agriculture industry. The School has successfully integrated scholarship and scientific discovery with all aspects of veterinary medical education.
