PHILOSOPHY: We seek to embrace a motivated intern into a diverse, well-established equine-exclusive practice that continues to grow & evolve. We believe that equine practice should be a lifelong passion, and therefore we balance experience and hands-on learning with mentorship and support. Our equine team never loses sight of the fact that each patient is as individual as we are. We have both hospital and ambulatory capabilities for medical and/or surgical cases as well as an in-house breeding and reproduction. Sports medicine and podiatry are also heavy in our practice. Our patients cover a wide range of breeds and disciplines with a significant percentage of those being performance animals, active in showing or competition. This opportunity allows for a year of varied equine experience in a private practice setting small enough to give individualized feedback but large enough to provide excellent preparatory cases for those professionals who are considering residency training.
