Camp's care team at the clinic included, from left, nurse
Lynsey Jackson and veterinary technicians Julia
McPherson and Rachel White.
" We are available to Zoo Atlanta and other area zoos to
discuss questions regarding other exotic animals as well.
Students can specialize with a small or large animal focus,
and some choose a 'mixed' track that includes a little of both. "
Hands-on, 360-degree education
Training for future veterinarians at the UGA College of
Veterinary Medicine is immersive and hands-on. The teaching
hospital and the emergency clinic provide opportunities for
students to work directly with animal patients.
" To become a veterinarian, students must complete four
years of veterinary school, then pass their national and state
boards before they can practice, " Brainard says. " Some students
go straight into practice after graduation. Others choose to
pursue internships and some residencies, which are focused
on specific areas of medicine, such as cardiology, oncology,
surgery, critical care, internal medicine or imaging. "
Typically, a referral from a family veterinarian is needed
to make an appointment with the teaching hospital. The
emergency clinic is available on a walk-up basis without
referrals, and pets may be transferred from the emergency room
to other services in the hospital. The college also operates a Pet
Health Center, which offers routine veterinary care, preventive
medicine and basic surgery.

" Because we are a teaching and research institution, we
have advanced diagnostics, methods of care and equipment
that primary-care or community practices may not have access
to, " Brainard says. " We work closely with veterinarians across
the state and network with other veterinary colleges around the
country to provide the latest technology and greatest levels of
service possible to help diagnose and treat our patients.
" With our advanced technology and diagnostic, surgical
and care services, costs can be a consideration for pet owners.
Charges and prognoses are discussed when animals are admitted
to the hospital so that pet owners are aware of the fees. "
Pet owners sometimes must make hard decisions regarding
advanced diagnoses and treatments.
" It was not even a question for us, " Casey says.
" I adopted Camp when he was just 8 weeks old,
and I wasn't nearly ready to say goodbye after only
nine years. We were ready to provide Camp with
anything he needed; he's part of our family. "
