By: Arielle Schoenlein, DVM
Small Animal Lead Veterinarian
Embarking on a career journey in veterinary medicine is a calling for those with a deep love for animals and a commitment to their well-being. For me, this journey took a transformative turn when I found myself stepping into the bustling halls of Quakertown Veterinary Clinic.
My journey as a veterinarian began right out of school at Quakertown Veterinary Clinic, a remarkable establishment that has defined my approach to animal care. With a century-long commitment to providing exceptional care to both our patients and clients, our clinic offers a comprehensive range of services. These include small animal emergency, surgery, routine care, and specialty services, as well as large animal ambulatory and on-site care.
As a small animal emergency veterinarian, my role is to deliver exceptional care through our seamlessly integrated on-site emergency and surgery services. I firmly believe that our ability to provide care across all aspects of veterinary medicine is a game-changer in our field.
The Benefits of Integrated Emergency and Surgery Care
Quakertown Veterinary Clinic is far from an ordinary veterinary establishment, and it’s part of what appealed to me when considering my career options. Our emergency service operates 24/7, 365 days a year, staffed by an experienced and collaborative team that treats every pet like family. Meanwhile, our surgery team is available for a wide range of procedures, including routine, emergency, and specialty surgeries. These surgeries encompass TPLOs, fracture repairs, perineal urethrostomies, abdominal exploratory procedures, cystotomies and more.
We fully understand the vital importance of having these two critical components under the same roof. This unique setup offers unparalleled benefits to both veterinarians and, most importantly, the beloved pets we care for.
Having emergency and surgery services under one roof is a tremendous benefit for our furry patients. In critical situations, time is of the essence, and immediate surgical intervention can be lifesaving. At Quakertown Veterinary Clinic, we can seamlessly transition from emergency care to surgery, ensuring that our patients receive the best possible care without delays. This streamlined approach significantly improves patient outcomes and minimizes stress for both pets and their worried owners.
The Career Advantages of Access to Emergency and Surgery in One Clinic
One of the most profound advantages of working at Quakertown Veterinary Clinic is the close-knit collaboration between the emergency and surgery teams. This synergy fosters a continuous exchange of knowledge and skills, resulting in an elevated level of expertise.
I have had the privilege of treating numerous cases with life-threatening conditions that required emergency stabilization and surgical intervention. With immediate access to the surgery team, we were able to diagnose and perform emergency surgery, ultimately saving these pets' lives.
My experience is a testament to how exposure to both emergency and surgery services enhances our diagnostic abilities and our capacity to provide timely and effective interventions.
A Journey of Continued Learning in Veterinary Medicine
My journey at Quakertown Veterinary Clinic has been one of continuous learning and growth. Exposure to a wide array of cases, from emergency traumas to complex surgical procedures, keeps my skills sharp and my knowledge up-to-date. The confidence that comes from knowing we have emergency and surgery services readily available reduces the stress that often accompanies difficult cases.
Quakertown Veterinary Clinic provides an exceptional experience for small animal veterinarians. The wide range of services we offer to our patients and clients has a transformative impact, offering expanded learning opportunities, improved patient care, and ongoing professional development.
The valuable experience gained in such clinics not only enhances our professional growth but, most importantly, guarantees that our animal patients receive the highest quality care when they need it the most. I wholeheartedly recommend my fellow veterinarians to explore opportunities in clinics like Quakertown Veterinary Clinic for a rewarding and prosperous career in veterinary medicine.
