Ryan Hospital Facilities

The Matthew J. Ryan Veterinary Hospital for Small Animals is one of the busiest veterinary teaching Penn Vet, Ryan Hospitalhospitals in the country. As such, we maintain state-of-the-art medical facilities and equipment for any kind of small animal emergency or treatment procedure.

The hospital has a minimally invasive surgery suite, an imaging and treatment center, as well as six sterile operation rooms and two minor surgery rooms.

Diagnostics and treatment equipment include a CT scanner, several ultrasound stations, radiography equipment, operating microscope for delicate surgeries such as kidney transplants, equipment for cataract surgeries, endoscope, laparoscope, arthroscope and Doppler ultrasound for cardiac diagnostics.

We recently opened the Rosenthal Imaging and Treatment Center (RITC), the Commonwealth’s only oncology and imaging facility devoted entirely to veterinary medicine. The 9,200-square-foot RITC houses magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) equipment for diagnostics, as well as a linear accelerator for radiation treatment.

Penn Vet was the first to have an animal bloodmobile and blood bank, with a cumulative total of 7,000 donor canines, and well as in-house cat donors. The hospital’s animal bloodmobile makes trips to blood drives two to three times a week. About 1,000 dogs are active donors.
