Veterinary Mentorship

There is no other veterinarian like you, and no other community like Metro Paws!  

With a mentorship at Metro Paws Animal Hospitals, you set the pace of your appointments for the first six months. We support you until you feel confident and capable, and a dedicated mentor will be there to help launch your career.

WHAT WE OFFER YOU Beyond the typical first veterinary job:

Comfortable in Surgery

2-3 days in the first few months of high volume spay / neutering training to get you comfortable in surgery. We know you may not have gotten as many spays under your belt in school – so we will help you sharpen that skill!

Extraction Techniques

Dental & Surgery Wet Lab with a boarded, small animal DVM to learn extraction techniques, enucleation, brachycephalic surgery, as well as numerous other surgeries.

Ultrasound Techniques

After hours training on ultrasound techniques in a non-hurried environment where you hold the probe and work the dials.

Team Case Support

Group texting supports you with challenging cases. Owner DVMs and senior associates are willing to help with complex or new surgical procedures.

Publish Articles

Metro Paws DVMs have a historic publication in JAVMA and continue writing articles for web publication. You, too, will have the opportunity to author client education articles.

By the End of Year One…

Most new veterinarians have done the following surgeries: cystotomy, foreign body removal via enterotomy, gastrotomy, splenectomy, resection/anastomosis, elongated soft palate correction, stenotic nares correction, cherry eye repair, entropion, mass removals, amputation of limbs, dental extractions, dental flaps, and cryptorchid surgery.

Many interested new graduates have the opportunity to learn FHO, fracture repair, GDV, diaphragmatic hernia repair, lung lobe resection, and many other surgeries.
