“Ambulatory” means “getting around,” and boy, do our veterinarians get around!
Veterinarians and students from the ambulatory service at the U of I Veterinary Teaching Hospital travel throughout 5 surrounding counties and to serve approximately 1700 clients.
They work with a wide range of animals, including beef and dairy cattle, horses, pigs, sheep, goats, llamas, and even some wildlife species. The practice offers year-round, 24-hour emergency services.
At Open House, you can see the tools and technology used in the fully equipped truck and learn about the services provided on farms, such as:
- Diagnosis of individual animal disease
- Herd performance evaluation and consultation
- Castration, dehorning, and routine production procedures
- Breeding soundness examinations for both male and female
- Assisted reproductive techniques (Artificial insemination, Embryo transfer, In vitro fertilization)
