The Elkhorn Veterinary Clinic is a busy, twelve doctor mixed animal practice employing 7 large animal veterinarians and 5 companion animal veterinarians. The clinic is located in southeast Wisconsin in an area well known as Chicago’s playground, with convenient access to Chicago, Milwaukee, and Madison. Although housing is not provided, rental opportunities are plentiful in the area.
The internship program will provide structured mentorship in all aspects of equine ambulatory practice including preventive care, dentistry, lameness, internal medicine, reproduction, and 24-hour emergency ambulatory care. Additional mentorship will include commercial and pet farm animal ambulatory medicine represented by bovine (principally dairy), small ruminants, camelids, potbellied pigs, as well as some exotics. Currently the case load is approximately 75% equine, 20% farm animal, and under 5% exotic and pot-bellied pig.
