Please welcome Dylan, the newest extern at Craig Road Animal Hospital!
Dylan grew up in Denver, North Carolina in the Charlotte area. He became interested in the Veterinary field when he was young and his first dog fell ill. Dylan’s pet was diagnosed with Lymphoma and he cared for her as she recovered. He came to discover that he enjoyed nursing his canine friend to health. From there, his interest in animal medicine blossomed.
For his undergrad, Dylan attended a small, independent bible school known as Montreat College. There, he majored in Pre-professional Biology. Today he attends North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine and is set to graduate May 2022.
Dylan volunteered at a small animal ER clinic back in his home city. He enjoyed the experience and learned many valuable things during his time there. Craig Road Animal Hospital will be his first externship. He learned about the program from a friend of his who also participated in the program and had a good experience. While here, Dylan hopes to get a more realistic view of what it means to work in an animal general practice. “Academia runs very slowly,” he said, “I know that’s not practical for most. So, I want to see how doctors handle workflow and paperwork first hand.”
In his free time, Dylan likes to relax by reading or playing chess but particularly likes to play video games. He also owns a spitfire of a black cat by the name of Luther. The feisty little cat lives with his parents while he attends school.
Welcome to the team, Dylan! We’re happy to have you here!
