Furnetic is natural outgrowth of the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine
that's committed to advancing animal health care through teaching, research and public service. For more than 60 years, the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine has been training exceptional veterinarians, including many of those located in Chicago, with the skills, insights and expertise required to deliver the best in small animal health care.
In order to better serve the animal health care needs of Chicago, the state's most populous city, the college opened the Chicago Center for Veterinary Medicine (CCVM) in 2009, expanding its mission to the greater Chicagoland area. The primary goal of the Chicago Center for Veterinary Medicine, which is staffed and run by skilled primary care veterinarians and specialists from the college, is to:
- Foster client, student and public education,
- Support exemplary and cutting edge advancements in veterinary medicine,
- And collaborate with Chicago area veterinarians, zoological programs, and medical professionals to benefit animal care and veterinary health.
Created by the Chicago Center for Veterinary Medicine, Furnetic is more than a friendly animal hospital; it's also a teaching clinic designed to help future veterinarians acquire the skills they need to manage a successful private urban practice. Students from the College of Veterinary Medicine at Urbana-Champaign are provided with the unique opportunity to complete rotations at Furnetic in order to enhance their client and patient services while increasing their knowledge and skills.
