this practice include dogs, cats, horses, llamas, alpacas and
occasionally sheep and goats.
This
is a mixed animal practice with a solo practitioner in a rural setting.
You will experience what real life day to day general practice is
like in a solo practice. You will experience not only treating animals
but also experience the aspects of practice management that a solo
practitioner in a small rural practice takes on. Animals routinely
treated in this practice include dogs, cats, horses, llamas, alpacas and
occasionally sheep and goats.
An
experienced relief veterinarian (DVM, PhD) is employed during the busy
spring and summer months to help with some of the small animal case
load. This veterinarian may also be available for supervision and
education depending on what time of year it is.
Journals, veterinary text books, one on one case reviews
Students
are expected to participate in all scheduled calls and appointments
daily. Students are also expected to be available for after hours
emergency calls for the duration of the elective. Students are expected
to keep a log of appointments including case details which will be
discussed on a case by case basis at the end of each work day. Students
are expected to help with hospitalized animal care and treatment.
Students will be expected to interact with clients in a positive and
professional manner. Students are also expected to interact with
support staff and veterinarians in a positive, helpful, inquisitive and
professional manner. At times students will be able to assist with
procedures and at other times they will only be able to observe. This
will be on a case by case basis based on the clients consent and the
judgement of the supervising veterinarian.
The
student will be under the direct supervision of the veterinarian during
our work day, five days a week. The student will not be expected to,
asked to or be required to perform any procedures without the direct
supervision of the veterinarian. The veterinarian will be available at
