Low-Income Veterinary Care Assistance

The vision of the CSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital is to advance medicine by integrating world-class patient care with leadership in veterinary education and scientific discovery.  The mission of the hospital is to educate the next generation of veterinarians by providing exceptional veterinary care and service to the community every day.
 
Your animal will receive care from a team of current leaders in veterinary medicine and the next generation of veterinarians. Providing the leading-edge technology, education, and research for the future of veterinary medicine and your animal requires significant resources, both human and financial.
 
These resource requirements, combined with Colorado competition statutes, make it unfeasible for the CSU VTH to provide free or below-cost veterinary care. We encourage those in need of financial assistance to discuss this with their VTH veterinarian and work with the VTH Client Services to pursue CSU VTH-based financial assistance. We have provided a list of low-cost veterinary care providers if care at the VTH is not a possibility.
