“During my three weeks at Colorado Equine, I felt incredibly welcome and learned so much. The staff members were always willing to answer anything I asked and involve me in the tasks they were doing. There were many opportunities for hands-on experience as well as observation. I really appreciated how open to discussion Dr. Page and Dr. Farris were about anything from certain therapeutics for diseases to how to interact with clients to how their weekend was with their families. I was an extern at three different veterinary clinics this summer and I have to say at Colorado Equine I felt like I was truly part of the team. I hope to return in the future!” – E. Beever
