West Central Veterinary Services is a progressive four-clinic mixed animal practice in west central Indiana. Located approximately one hour from Indianapolis, we are in a beautiful rural setting close to the Indiana/Illinois state line. Rolling hills, covered bridges and Amish farms make this scenic country. Turkey Run State Park and Raccoon Lake offer outdoor recreation close by. Indianapolis, West Lafayette, and Champaign are approximately 1.5 hours away from our central Rockville location.
We offer many small animal services, including small animal community practice, medicine, surgery, canine rehabilitation services, behavioral services, acupuncture and chiropractic services, as well as after-hours emergency. Soft tissue surgery, dental procedures and orthopedic surgery are routinely performed (including fracture repair and ACL tears, patellar luxation repair). Our clinic also offers digital x-ray, ultrasound and cold laser for our small animal patients. Certified veterinary technicians and a dedicated support team are present as well.
Large animal services include medicine and surgery, equine reproductive services, bovine reproductive services (including embryo transfer), beef and dairy herd health medicine, small ruminant medicine, and after-hours emergency services. The Rockville clinic has a dedicated barn for large animal work with a technician and support staff. Ambulatory services are offered at all four clinics for our large animal clients.
We have openings for externs of all years of veterinary school, for students with small, food, equine or mixed practice interests. Our goal for students is to see a variety of medical and surgical cases in a rural atmosphere. We advocate for as much hands-on experience as possible and can tailor an externship to fit specific areas of interest. Availability for after-hour emergencies is encouraged, as this can enhance your experience. Living quarters are available on-site, however we do not currently offer a monetary stipend. Availability is on a first-come-first-serve basis, with only one extern accepted at a time to allow for a more hands-on experience for the student.
