The Present

The Dog and Cat Clinic is located in the Pavilion of Small Animal Clinics and is part of the Small Animal Section (headed by Prof. MVDr. Alois Nečas, Ph.D., MBA). In addition to the Dog and Cat Clinic (headed by Prof. MVDr. Alois Nečas, Ph.D., MBA), there is also the Clinic for Birds, Reptiles and Small Mammals (headed by Prof. MVDr. Zdeněk Knotek, CSc.) and the Small Animal Clinical Laboratory (headed by Prof. MVDr. Jaroslav Doubek, CSc.).

The Dog and Cat Clinic underwent extensive renovation between 2001 and 2003, and it is now fully equipped with the latest diagnostic technology. Currently, the clinic employs more than 70 specialized professionals. As a modern clinical facility, we provide comprehensive veterinary services for dogs and cats at a high professional standard. For detailed information about specific departments, please refer to the individual department listings.

Dog and Cat Clinic

At the clinic, we offer round-the-clock veterinary services to patients from all over the Czech Republic. Additionally, in selected specialities and procedures, we also cater to patients from neighbouring countries, which is a gratifying recognition of the professional expertise of many of the experts working here. Annually, we treat approximately 10,000 patients at the clinic (excluding follow-up appointments and repeated examinations), and the number of hospitalized animals is also growing.

The hospitalization area comprises four dog wards and two cat wards, providing a total capacity of 96 spaces. Currently, the majority of our patients are dogs; however, the proportion of cats is steadily increasing each year. The clinic primarily serves as a referral facility for various specialities and diagnostic procedures, but we do not turn away any patients seeking medical help or consultation.


History of the clinic as a whole

The closest organizational predecessor of the Dog and Cat Clinic was the Small Animal Clinic established in 1999 as part of a significant reorganization of clinical activities at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine. During this restructuring, it was decided to transition away from organizing clinics based on disciplines such as internal medicine, surgery, obstetrics, and gynaecology. Instead, a new structure was adopted that categorized clinics according to species or groups of species. The clinic was established through the merger of the Clinic of Surgery and Orthopaedics, the First Internal Medicine Clinic, and the Clinic of Obstetrics, Gynaecology and Andrology. The new organizational unit incorporated aspects related to internal medicine, surgery, orthopaedics, radiology, and the reproduction of small animals. Thus, the Dog and Cat Clinic, in its current organizational structure, was formed in 2003.
