VCA Northwood Animal Hospital

Number of students reviewing: 
Average student review (out of five): 
Northwood provides care 24 hours a day. We have a general practice, an emergency practice and a surgical referral practice. The ER practice has a veterinarian and technicians on premises whenever the general practice is closed. A criticalist is part of the general practice and receives referrals for internal medicine care.
Extern students are expected to rotate through each of the services during their time at Northwood. They actively participate in office calls, clinical treatment, diagnostics and surgery. During their rotation in the referral surgical service they would be expected to scrub in on the cases each day.
