On March 23, 2013, Cornell University Veterinary Specialists (CUVS) celebrated the lives and recoveries of patients who have overcome great odds. It was a heartwarming reunion for these brave survivors, the families who supported them and the CUVS staff who provided lifesaving care.

CUVS differs from other veterinary centers in that they are mission-driven and university-affiliated. Their mission is to provide the most sophisticated and compassionate patient care to their clients, to contribute to the advancement of companion animal medicine and to contribute to the community.

As the largest university-affiliated veterinary referral center in the country, our aim is to combine the most advanced medical procedures with a service-oriented, efficient, and sustainable practice model. Our hospital is integrated with the diagnostic and research programs of Cornell's leading College of Veterinary Medicine, and all net revenue from CUVS supports Cornell's educational and discovery missions.
