Intern veterinary surgeons

We have a team of nine veterinary interns, 7 who rotate between disciplines, a neurology intern and a cardiology intern. They are all qualified veterinary surgeons usually with one to two years of experience in general practice.Their primary roles are coordination between specialists and nurses to ensure the highest level of care for our patients, and also that owners and referring vets are kept up-to-date. They are heavily involved in day-to-day care of all patients, and are on the premises 24 hours a day to support the nursing and specialist teams. Their dedication is key to the smooth running of the practice.
