evaluations, plus provides adult and neonatal intensive care. The

24 hour, 7 day a week emergency care.
All three veterinarians at the hospital are boarded in Surgery (2) or Internal Medicine (1).
A reasonable library exists of current textbooks, as well as current surgical literature from 2002 to current.
Students
are expected to observe all outpatient examinations and surgeries.
Additionally, students will be assisting the technicians and veterinary
assistants in the care of hospitalized horses. If staying on-site,
students are expected to assist with all emergencies, day or night, and
on weekends. If students are staying locally, they have the option of
returning to the hospital to assist with emergencies.

Monday through Friday, and on the weekends, the veterinarian on call
will be available. Work days M-F are usually 9-5, during which time the
