UI vet clinic ready for all contingencies
Area animal owners may be interested to know that, in addition to the two boarded critical care specialists in the small animal emergency service mentioned in the N-G's April 26 article on the new trauma center designation, the University of Illinois veterinary hospital is fortunate to have a third such specialist on staff, Dr. Pamela Wilkins. She provides emergency and critical care for horses.
In fact, as the director of the UI's Veterinary Teaching Hospital, I am pleased to report that our hospital staff is well-equipped and trained to treat trauma and other emergency needs of virtually any species, from farm animals to exotic pets.
Dr. BRENDAN C. MCKIERNAN
