Nicollet Veterinary Clinic is located 90 minutes SW of the U of M St Paul campus near Mankato. Our staff enjoys mentoring veterinary & vet tech students. While providing high quality veterinary care is our priority, at NVC we enjoy getting to know pet owners in an informal, personal setting. The ideal candidate for an NVC externship is energetic & motivated to learn smedicine and surgical skills and has a desire to improve the human/animal bond. We strive to offer any support we can to make every pet home a forever home. The entire NVC staff at is Fear Free certified.
Pursuit of special interests, which has led to a growth in dental, repro, and behavior services, as well as shelter medicine. Owner compliance with dental prophys keeps the surgery schedule very full, and we do our own cystotomies, c-sections, foreign body surgeries, etc. Traveling specialists come in for dermatology and ultrasound referrals. Monthly we volunteer 1 vet & 1 tech for a day to do sterilization surgeries at our local shelter, which also provided interested students the opportunity to practice their spay/neuter skills.
Student housing is available if needed.
