The UGA Community Practice Clinic serves patients whose owners live in the greater Athens area. The primary care clinic, separate from our referral hospital, is operated by faculty veterinarians who are assisted by UGA veterinary students, an intern (a DVM working on advanced training), and trained veterinary technicians.

The clinic provides our fourth-year DVM students with a unique opportunity to experience the operation of a general veterinary practice under the guidance of full-time faculty veterinarians, while also providing the surrounding community with quality care for companion animals.

In addition to offering routine care, the UGA College of Veterinary Medicine’s Behavior and Dermatology services are also located in the Community Practice Clinic. Neither service requires a referral from your primary veterinarian.
