The department core objective is to deliver excellent patient care and compassionate services to the companion and farm animal patients and their owners through smooth operationalization of the Teaching Veterinary Hospital (TVH). Being an integral part of the College of Veterinary Science, Teaching Veterinary Hospital is committed to provide state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment facilities for their animal patients. The department works in collaboration with the clinical (Veterinary Medicine, Surgery & Radiology and Gynaecology & Obstetrics) and paraclinical (Veterinary Pathology, Parasitology, Microbiology, Toxicology, Public Health and Animal Nutrition) departments. With an annual OPD of approximately 32,000 farm and pet animal patients, the teaching hospital caters to the need of animal owners from all over north India. The hospital is also a referral centre for private and government veterinarians. The hospital owns a well equipped central diagnostic laboratory along with other advanced diagnostic facilities such as endoscopy, echocardiography, digital radiology and ultrasonography for assisting clinicians in disease diagnosis and to provide the best possible treatment. With a wide variety of clinical cases, Teaching Veterinary Hospital acts as a learning centre for clinical hands on training for the next generation of general practitioners and veterinary specialists. The undergraduate and postgraduate students have excellent opportunities to transform their theoretical knowledge into practical skills. Here, they learn how to communicate with the animal owners, handle clinical cases, perform diagnostic procedures, evaluate & interpret test results, and correlate them with the clinical findings for proper diagnosis and treatment.
