  • Friends of Penn Vet

    The Penn Vet Fund is the most vital source of unrestricted gift revenue for the School of Veterinary Medicine.

    Private gifts to this fund are critical to the advancement of Penn Vet's mission. Supporting the Penn Vet Fund gives the Dean added flexibility that enables Penn Vet to respond quickly to unforeseen needs and new opportunities, such as to develop academic programs, support for innovative studies and the purchase of new equipment and technologies.

  • Friends of Ryan Hospital

     The Matthew J. Ryan Veterinary Hospital for companion animals excels in the delivery of health care to our animal patients. It is one of the nation's best tertiary veterinary providers, offering broad-based, comprehensive clinical programs that provide veterinary students with exceptional training experiences.

    Continuing nearly 125 years of veterinary hospital experience, the current building opened in Philadelphia in 1981. The Ryan Veterinary Hospital treats companion- and small-animal patients of all shapes and sizes: mammals and reptiles and birds and fish. In this teaching hospital, fourth-year students on clinical rotation frequently staff the front lines handling patient intake, collecting case histories and conducting initial examinations under the guidance of veterinary faculty and residents.

    The hospital's Emergency Service operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and is staffed by board-certified specialists trained in critical care. Our faculty and staff see approximately 13,000 emergency among the 31,000 patient visits each year. More than 50 percent of those cases are referrals from practitioners throughout the country.

    This work depends, in large part, on private donations, and cannot continue without this support. You can help by making a tax-deductible donation today.

  • The Barbaro Fund

    The Barbaro Fund supports the care of equine patients at the Widener Hospital for Large Animals at Penn Vet's New Bolton Center and the operation of the hospital.

Itchy Izzu

At age seven, Izzu had already been an itchy dog for a few years. His chronic skin disease had been treated with antibiotics, antifungals, and steroids. He was frequently bathed with an anti-microbial shampoo. He was even placed on multiple diet trials to determine if he suffered from a food allergy.
