Externship

Salt Creek and its sister clinic, Countryside Veterinary Hospital, are a 3-clinic, 4-veterinarian practice group providing veterinary care to 5 counties in the north central part of Texas. We are an all female, team-oriented practice that encourages personal and family time, while still practicing high-quality veterinary medicine in a rural setting. Located 2 hours west of Dallas, we are a truly mixed practice that is 45% bovine, 50% small animal, and the remainder split among small ruminants, equine, and cervids. The species caseload fluctuates seasonally, with heavy cattle work in the fall and spring. We provide ultrasound pregnancy testing to herds throughout the year, as well as year-round sale barn pregnancy testing and bull testing. Our clinic stays current by offering in-house laboratory diagnostics, digital radiography, gas anesthesia, and anesthetic monitoring. We perform progressive medicine and surgeries, ruminant and small animal C-sections, and laceration repairs. We currently only accept fourth year students as externships are focused on preparing students to be a doctor in the near future. Students will have the opportunity to work with the local humane society and gain hands on experience with physical exams, technical skills and surgeries. Come visit a team-oriented, progressive practice.Please fill out our application below and email it to [email protected]
