Myhre Equine Clinic's team approach allows interns the unique opportunity to work closely with the clinic's expert veterinarians, experienced veterinary technicians, consultants, and farriers. We provide interns with comprehensive training in equine medicine and surgery, advanced diagnostics, emergency and critical care, and ambulatory services. Expert guidance is available, encouraging interns to gain valuable hands-on experience to develop their skills and expand their knowledge base. Interns assist with out-patient and elective procedures, care and treatment of hospitalized patients, surgeries, and emergency treatments. Interns can expect to see a diversity of patients, including English (hunter/jumper, eventing, dressage) and Western (reining, rodeo, pleasure) competition horses, racehorses (TB and STB), driving, drafts, and recreational horses. The same team approach applies to Cocheco Veterinary Hospital but with an opportunity for far more hands-on, independent work with clients and patients. Guidance is available through clinicians at both facilities, in addition to an experienced, well-established mixed animal practitioner in the area.
At Myhre Equine Clinic, there are approximately 20+ out-patient cases per week and 200 emergency-hospital cases per year, with an average of 8+ in-patients per day (during the busier season(s)). The clinic employs routine use of lameness evaluations and diagnostic imaging (to include digital radiography, ultrasound, CAT scans, nuclear scintigraphy, and MRI). As an up-and-coming mixed animal veterinary hospital in the area, Cocheco Veterinary Hospital currently sees approximately 50+ routine out-patient cases, 40+ medical cases, and 5-10 surgical/dental procedures per week, in addition to emergencies and critical care. Hospitalization of patients is case-dependent. Advanced diagnostics (as previously dictated) are available for patients. Myhre Equine Clinic provides one surgical suite with two well-padded induction/recovery stalls, treatment room with advanced diagnostic and therapeutic equipment (e.g., diagnostic and therapeutic ultrasound, Game Ready, shock wave, endoscopy, needle-scope, etc.), radiology, nuclear scintigraphy, MRI, CT scanner, in-house laboratory with PRP/IRAP equipment, pharmacy (in-house and online), 20+ in- and out-patient stalls, and two colic stalls, a mare and neonatal unit, and three isolation stalls, all with video monitoring capability.
