Shadow With Us!

The shadow program is for current high school or college students, and allows the opportunity to observe veterinary medicine in practice. The applicant will be paired with a doctor or a technician. They may learn about basic pet husbandry, purpose of vaccinations, heartworm and flea/tick prevention, observe procedures, observe emergency/critical care, discover what it is like to be a veterinarian or technician, and see how a larger veterinary practice functions. Please understand that students are only permitted to observe, and will not be able to handle any of the animals or equipment. Generally students are scheduled for 2-3 hour shifts, for a maximum of 2 shifts. Students must be at least 16 years of age to shadow.
