Delaney Veterinary Services (DVS) is offering three internship positions, one each in General practice, Surgery/ lameness, and Reproduction starting in June 2022.
We are a large, full service, equine hospital that offers primary care to the greater Edmonton area (Alberta, Canada) and serves as a referral center for veterinarians from Alberta, Saskatchewan, British Columbia, and the Yukon. At DVS we offer the opportunity to practice high quality medicine with the luxury of multiple Board Certified Surgeons (DACVS), a Board Certified Theriogenologist (DACT), and several other highly regarded general practitioners.
Our practice was newly built 12 years ago and boasts a fully equipped surgery suite with two recovery boxes. We perform both elective and emergency surgeries including exploratory laparotomy, arthroscopy, laparoscopy, fracture repair, and C-section. For lameness we offer a lameness locator and both indoor and outdoor arenas for performing lameness exams. We have several tools for equine rehabilitation and also fully supplied farrier shop. We have a strong reproduction program that services 200+ mares and foals out approximately 25-30 foals per year. We offer advanced reproductive techniques including embryo transfer, epidydimal flushes, embryo vitrification, semen freezing. We also commonly perform advanced dentistry, general health exams, spinal adjustment, acupuncture, rehabilitation, and advanced imaging. The hospital also carries a complete in-house laboratory.
The goal of this internship program will allow you to pursue equine practice in an intense case load environment under the direct guidance of experienced equine veterinarians.
At DVS on-call emergencies are divided amongst the clinicians and interns at the hospital. We have full time support staff as well as many part-time staff, students, externs and volunteers. Interns will be directly supervised on all emergencies until they are proficient and confident to perform afterhours duties unassisted. Throughout the internship all interns will continue to be shadowed by a senior veterinarian/ specialist who are always available by phone or to come in and provide assistance if needed. To facilitate after hours duties, we also have stall cameras for closed system monitoring of ICU cases and PIA monitor system. At the option of the intern, the hospital has a newly built (2020), premier on-site residence for interns, free of charge (pictures available on request).
