Location: Myrtle Beach

Come visit 60 miles of beautiful, white sand coastline. Here you can discover stunning sunrises over the Atlantic Ocean, sprawling sandy beaches, and lots of fun activities. Even in the winter, the sunshine is warm and the weather is temperate which makes this the perfect place for outdoor fun and relaxing on the porch.


Not only will you have a great time learning what it takes to thrive in a small animal general practice and urgent care hospital; but, you will have fun doing it!


We will tailor your internship program to your needs and college requirements. Our hours are Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm. Weekends will be free to enjoy what our community has to offer. There will be no after hours emergency work or late nights. We want this to be a fun and educational time for you! You will get more out of your internship the more you get involved.
