Valley Mobile Veterinary Service, Inc.

Description

I am a solo practitioner that does about 75% dairy. The rest is divided up between small ruminants (7%), camelid (7%), cervid (7%), and beef (<5%). The practice is based out of my home and I have a full-time office/business manager. Room and board are provided in our home by a basement efficiency. The student would be able to go on all regularly scheduled visits and emergency calls, averaging anywhere from 3-8 stops in one 10-12-hour day. Procedures include routine herd health work (rectal palpations via ultrasound, some records analysis and profit team meetings), LDA/RDA surgeries, dehorning, mastitis culturing, fecal samples, vaccinations, castrations, dystocias, sick animal medicines, C-sections, etc. My clients like interactive students!
