Dear Participant,

We offer a summer externship program through the Academy of Rural Veterinarians. You can apply by going to their website at  

We are a progressive and busy practice with three full-time veterinarians. Our Bowie clinic includes three seperate buildings: small animal, equine and bovine.  Our bovine caseload consists mainly of preventative herd health management, individual health assessments and reproduction services.  We also provide services for several area daries.  Equine work includes preventative medicine, dental care, routine surgeries, lameness evaluations, reproductive management and laceration and wound care. We provide care for ranch horses, cutting horses and a few "show" horses.  Our small animal caseload consists of routine preventative medicine, advanced medicine cases, routine surgery, soft tissue and orthopedic surgery.

Our diagnostic equipment includes: 

digital imaging, lasercyte cbc, catalyst chemistry and elecrtrolyte analyzer, UA analyzer, blood gas analyzer, video endoscope, otoscope, arthoscope, and laproscope.  

Externs will be exposed to a true mixed animal practice.
