Congratulations!

Three veterinarians who joined the EMC in 2023 have all landed highly prized residency positions after completing a one-year rotating medicine and surgery internship at the EMC.

Dr. Lindsay Dennis will be joining Michigan State University Veterinary Medical Center in East Lansing, Michigan as a medicine resident, and Dr. Kate Montgomery will join Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital in Lexington, Kentucky as a medicine resident.

The third intern completing her one-year rotating medicine and surgery internship, Dr. Alex Grobman will stay at the EMC for an additional three years as a surgery resident.

EMC staff are passionate about horses, equine health, and sharing knowledge with others, and nothing gives the EMC clinical team more pleasure than seeing our hard-working interns move into residency positions to continue their education and broaden their knowledge in their chosen field. 🐎🐎🐎

Ready, set, go! The EMC is ready for foaling season!!!!

The EMC recently held the second of two evening training courses for foal watch and mare watch volunteers. Incredibly, a total of 149 people attended training during the two evenings. This program runs from February through June each year, and volunteers are asked to sign up and cover four-hour shifts during the length of the program.

Training this year was hosted by Brittany Schruefer, Lead Patient Care Veterinary Assistant, who did a fantastic job introducing volunteers to EMC faculty, residents, and interns, while also explaining the many nuances of caring for a compromised foal.

Volunteers were also instructed on the signs of foaling in the mare that can precede imminent delivery and the importance of having eyes on these mares at all times.

An enormous THANK YOU from our faculty and staff to those of you who have signed up for this program!
