Meet Megan, our new extern!

Megan is a Las Vegas local who is studying Veterinary Medicine at Washington State University in Pullman, WA. She was brought back to Las Vegas through Craig Road Animal Hospital’s externship program where she will be getting hands on experience on what it is like to work at a veterinary practice. “I am definitely interested in pursuing a residency in small animal internal medicine,” Megan said. “I’ve always wanted to help animals and the more experience I get, the more I realize that it isn’t just about the animal, it’s about their owners too.”

Megan started working with animals as a Veterinary Assistant while still in high school. “That is where I learned just how important excellent care, medicine, and communication is for the client and patient.”

Megan has a cat named Quincy and a snake named Loki.

“I’m so excited to get started,” she said. “Being a pet owner myself, I can relate to wanting to bring your pets to someone you trust to take care of their loved ones.” After her stay in Vegas, Megan will be on her way to another internship Greensboro, North Carolina before graduating in May.
