Orrville Veterinary Clinic

Support of the Veterinary Profession

We are proud to be a partner with many veterinary students, as well as other aspiring veterinarians who may be yet to enter the formal schooling process.  You may see people around our clinic from time to time that you do not recognize.  A lot of times, students from veterinary schools come to shadow our unique practice.  The number of mixed animal veterinary clinics is decreasing across the country.  The size and scope of our practice allows these veterinary students the ability to see both companion animal medicine and farm animal medicine.  Our doctors are a great resource to discuss the unique challenges that are presented when being a mixed animal practitioner. 

We typically sponsor a veterinary student each summer in a partnership with Zoetis (formerly Pfizer Animal Health).  We also partner with the Ohio Veterinary Medical Association to sponsor a summer large animal internship. 

Please welcome these students to your farm and into the exam room when you see them.  They are the future of our profession!
