Our ambulatory veterinarians provide a full range of services from routine herd health care, dentistry, reproductive services (Mare reproductive services, Embryo Flush/Transfer, and Stallion collections for fresh cooled and freezing), lameness/sports medicine, and emergency services.

Our externship offers a great opportunity for veterinary students to gain knowledge and experience in all fields of equine practice; we are a very busy equine practice, and the extern will be exposed to many areas of clinical practice. Our externs will have the opportunity to observe surgical cases, lameness work ups/treatment, advanced imaging, ride on farm calls with ambulatory veterinarians, and observe ophthalmologic procedures with Dr. Tolar. We rotate externs through all areas of the clinic, but if they have a particular interest, we try to let them spend more time in that area. We try to allow our externs hands on experiences depending on level of ability, schooling level, clientele, and case load. Our externships are usually scheduled for 2 weeks blocks, but depending on the schedule we are open to shorter or longer stays. We offer dormitory style onsite housing for externs (no more than 2 students at a time). If you are interested in our internship program, scheduling an externship is a great way to get to know the clinic and staff.
