Internship description

This veterinary clinic offers a client-centered practice, which means that their doctors and staff offer a welcoming, informative, and supportive experience from the moment the client walks through our door. The clinic provides high-quality veterinary care, surgical techniques and dental care to pets in Accra, Ghana and surrounding areas. Since 1999 they have treated dogs, cats, sheep and goats while also providing basic care for exotic pet species, including birds, rabbits, reptiles and small mammals The goal of the Veterinary Clinic is to educate each client and offer each pet the highest quality of veterinary care available.

They believe in a holistic approach to veterinary medicine using complementary medicine. Thus, they address the entirety of the pet's emotional, physical and environmental needs. They believe in providing support and education for owners in order that they can care effectively for their pets from the beginning to the end of the pet's life. To that end, a chief aspect of the clinic's work is providing house calls to clients.
