Midwestern University invites you to visit and tour the Companion Animal Clinic, an 111,800-square-foot teaching clinic designed to provide learning opportunities for students as they serve the local community's pets and their owners. The new facility, part of the Midwestern University Animal Health Institute and located at 5715 West Utopia Road in Glendale just south of the Loop 101, will be open to the public for tours on Saturday, June 27, 2015 from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm.

Pet owners and interested community members will have the opportunity to see first-hand one of the nation's largest state-of-the-art small animal clinics and meet the veterinarians from the College of Veterinary Medicine. Light refreshments will be served in the lobby, and pet-themed giveaways and raffle items will contribute to the festive atmosphere.

The new Clinic offers affordable high-quality primary and specialty care for small animals, including preventive medicine/wellness, dental care, surgery, diagnostic imaging, senior pet care, and other specialties. The Clinic has also received accreditation from the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), a distinction enjoyed by only 15% of veterinary practices nationwide.

Initial pet care appointments are being managed by the Clinic's experienced veterinary faculty. In spring 2017, students from Midwestern University's College of Veterinary Medicine, the state's only four-year Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (D.V.M.) program, will begin supervised rotations as part of their training.  The University has committed over $180 million toward the College's physical facilities, including the Companion Animal Clinic, a 70,000 square foot educational Bovine and Equine Center, and a necropsy/pathology center currently completing construction.
