EMS Vet Student Placements

At Fishguard Vets we adopt a proactive approach towards EMS and can provide truly mixed placements; 35% small animal, 65% large animal and 5% equine. Students are welcome to join our team to shadow the vets who set about a daily mix of routine visits, farm calls, emergencies calls, small animal consultations and observe operations. If students would prefer to specialize in either large or small animal placement we can also accommodate this.

We have excellent facilities at the practice with digital x-ray machine, anaesthetic machine using the latest technology to enhance patient recovery and minimize the risk, portable ultrasound scanners, see our facilities for more information.
Our veterinary team can offer students a wealth of experience and teaching in large and small animal veterinary medicine and practice, and currently have four full time vets, two TB testing vets and a team of auxillary staff.

The practice opens at 8:30am and closes at 5:30pm Monday to Friday. Students are expected to arrive at 8:30am, please note that the vet will not wait for you, so if you are running late the vet will leave without you! Lunch can be at a varied time but you should have time to pop to the local shops or you can bring a packed lunch. The evening small animal clinic finishes at 5:30pm but this time can vary as more people come along or an emergency might come in. You are welcome to stay until all clients are seen and any emergencies dealt with but after 5:30pm you can leave.
