About CSAM and Ryan Veterinary Hospital
The Department of Clinical Sciences & Advanced Medicine and the Ryan Veterinary Hospital provide state of the art diagnosis and treatment for a variety of disorders.
Penn Vet's Ryan Hospital in Philadelphia provides care for dogs, cats, and other domestic/companion animals, handling more than 30,000 patient visits a year, some 9,000 of which are emergency cases.
Our Emergency Service — open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year — is staffed by emergency medicine clinicians and emergency/critical care specialists, as well as nursing specialists in emergency/critical care, augmented by on-call specialists.
The Penn Vet Commitment
The Department of Clinical Sciences & Advanced Medicine plays a vital role in Penn Vet's three-part mission to educate veterinarians and the public about animal health, provide service to the public by treating sick pets and other small animals, and develop new approaches through research to improve companion animal health.
Penn Vet includes as part of its mission a commitment to advancing the frontiers of knowledge about animal health and disease in order to improve animal well-being.
Faculty and staff in the Clinical Sciences & Advanced Medicine department operate the Matthew J. Ryan Veterinary Hospital, where companion animals (pets) are seen as patients. Faculty in our department include some who have basic biomedical programs in traditional laboratories, and also many whose interests revolve around naturally occurring conditions that afflict pet animals (including but not limited to dogs and cats). These pets are brought to our hospital by their owners for diagnosis and treatment. Our department's investigations are aimed at improving the health of our animal patients, and in many cases, the results are also relevant to humans with the same conditions.
