Kira shared her experience with us - 

Kira - extern at Sugar River Animal HospitalI spent three weeks doing an externship at Sugar River Animal Hospital during my fourth year at vet school and it was an experience I found invaluable. I was given the opportunity to practice many skills needed to become an excellent veterinarian including basic surgeries, cytology, interpreting blood work, and client communication. The entire staff was welcoming and incredibly kind, treating me like I had worked there for years. The veterinarians at SRAH are highly educated and dedicated to providing the best care for both pets and owners. They helped me focus on areas of general practice that I wanted to learn more about and were always willing to discuss interesting cases that came in. Through this externship, I gained experience and built relationships that will last throughout my career.
