Sugar River Animal Hospital is a three doctor small animal AAHA accredited and Cat Friendly certified practice located in Grantham, NH.
We typically host several externs a year for 2-3 weeks, but are open to whatever length works for your schedule.
Our externships are very hands on. We are a busy small animal general practice that sees a variety of cases. We do surgery and dentistry three days a week and do everything from routine spays and neuters to emergency surgeries such as foreign bodies and everything in between. We also have a boarded internist and boarded surgeon that come to the practice for echocardiograms, abdominal ultrasounds and orthopedic surgeries.
We allow our externs to scrub in and perform surgery, dentistry and run appointments while having the practice owner mentor them.
Sugar River Animal Hospital is fully equipped with state of the art equipment. We have two digital dental x-rays, a ligasure, full in house Idexx lab machines, a tonovet, ultrasound and digital x-ray to name just a few of our many toys.
