The Haslett Animal Hospital team has team members on staff at all times, but Williamston does not.
Staff arrives at the clinic early (6:15 am) to walk boarding and hospitalized animals. However, the clinic doesn’t open officially until 7AM. During all of our hours there are multiple staff members here.
Once the clinic closes for the night, trained staff called interns meet with the on-call veterinarians and technicians and review the cases of any hospitalized or surgical cases in the hospital. Those trained interns then care for and perform the necessary treatments on those patients until approximately midnight, at which point the interns return to their living quarters above the clinic. The interns are in close contact with the on-call veterinarian throughout the evening hours, relaying the status of the hospitalized patients to that doctor.
When the clinic closes Saturday at noon, the interns again take over caring for any hospitalized patients for the weekend. The interns meet with the on-call doctor at least daily to examine patients and review and update the treatment plans.
