With the help of a lead gift from the CVM Class of ’94, a landscaped sitting area was created near the main entrance of the teaching hospital. Clients, students and staff use it. Future plans include renovation to the entrance area itself so that it can better accommodate mobility-impaired clients.
Equine Rounds Room
A room just for equine clients, students and clinicians was recently built. This room provides a quiet place away from the noisy reception area where doctors can speak with clients. The equine rounds room is also used by doctors and students to meet for discussion about their cases.
J.D. Consultation / Comfort Room
A warm and tender feeling is conveyed though the comfortable furniture and gentle lighting of the J.D. Consultation Room. This special room was created to provide a private place for families to use when they are consulting with the medical team about the options facing a seriously ill companion animal. The room was furnished by an Ames family that had gone through the experience of euthanizing a cherished companion. It is named for J.D., their English Pointer. Families also use the room when their pet is undergoing a serious surgery.
