“It starts with CARE and ends with PRIDE”
Our Teaching Mission
Here at Bailey Veterinary Clinic, our teaching mission goes beyond our own clinic and community. We have the mindset of pursuing the future of the industry and advancing the level of knowledge and care that is available to our patients and our clients. We believe that the greater we are able to support and grow the next generation of veterinarians, the greater their ability to prepare for their career ahead. Veterinary medicine can be tough at times. Having a strong community around you, can make a world of difference.

"Baileys is an 11-doctor practice that sees both large and small animals. They offer general practice hours and daily emergency hours. You can truly see a little bit of everything! The staff does an amazing job of making you feel welcomed. I was able to follow doctors into appointments and I was even sought out by doctors when they had an interesting case. They wanted me to come see and would allow me to do a PE. Then the doctor would ask what I thought before just telling me what was going on. I would arrive in the morning, a doctor would give me a full case history, tell me to go look at the x-rays, then come back and tell them what I saw. If I was unsure or if I had questions, we’d go look at the x-rays together. During appointments I was introduced to clients, whom encouraged me to do a PE while in the room as well. After every appointment I went into, all doctors constantly asked if I had questions about that case or if their treatment plan made sense. I really could go on and on about this clinic. So, if you’re looking for an externship, I cannot recommend this place enough!"
