Description of Elective Experience:

This is a single veterinarian practice at the moment. On Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, the mornings are filled with procedures such as dentistry, surgery, mass removals etc. The afternoons are typically filled with appointments. On Tuesdays,  the entire day is devoted to appointments. Friday, the veterinarian is not on site and the hospital sees only tech appointments. Throughout the week, drop off appointments are accommodated based on the needs of the patient and staff availability.
Appointments typically run from 9 am to 12 pm and restart at 2 pm - 5 pm. The veterinarian will use the non appointment hours to call clients back with diagnostics, answer pressing questions and work on operational tasks for the hospital.
