The hospital employs a competent team of professionals in order to provide the highest quality care to the animals that they can. The hospital is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and has borne two satellite hospitals in Hasbrouck Heights and Fort Lee.
Summary of Internship
During this internship, I was able to shadow many of the doctors practicing in the hospital. I was able to see a variety of branches of medicine, including surgery, oncology, neurology and general medicine. While shadowing the doctors I was unable to personally interact with the animals, but I was able to accompany them into the treatment rooms and observe as they gave treatment and examined the animals. On several occasions I was able to observe surgeries done on the animals. Not only was I able to observe the veterinarians, I was also able to observe the vet techs and see what goes on behind the scenes and how surgeries are prepped and various other activities. This internship really gave me a good look into the world of veterinary medicine, and I am grateful for the opportunity.
