Veterinary student externship openings
Externships are available in the fall, winter, and spring. The business is a two man mixed practice consisting of 80% large animal and 20% small. The large animal is mostly cow/calf with some feedlot, dairy, sheep and goats, and horses. The small animal is mostly dogs and cats. Herd health concepts are emphasized in all operations. The clinic has a small animal exam/treatment/surgery room, dispensing/reception area, lab/prep room, small kennel for surgical recovery and calf intravenous patients, Out back in an enclosed area is a large animal chute and tip table (both hydraulic) with the holding corral also under roof. Both haul in work and ambulatory work are abundant. The externship would provide students with exposure to lots of different cases depending on time of year. I like learning what students bring from their schooling and also enjoy teaching in everyday experiences. Housing is provided in our home.
Willingness and enthusiasm to learn. A desire to serve our animal patients as well as the people who own them. Should have coveralls, boots, and a stethoscope. Warmer clothes are necessary if the extern chosen falls in the winter months.
