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.
