Travis Kelter, Animal Caretaker Preceptorship student: Many memories come flooding back when I reflect on my two-month preceptorship at the Wildlife Center of Virginia in the summer of 2011. Rarely was there a dull moment at the Center or the student house and the opportunities presented by the Wildlife Center were truly amazing. When I think back over my time there, two memories in particular stand out – one about a patient, the other about … my own adventure at the Center.
Dr. Adam Naylor, Veterinary Intern:
Back in August 2011, just a week after I started my one-year internship at the Wildlife Center, Dr. Miranda admitted a female mallard duck with a leg injury. The duck had been found in downtown Harrisonburg and was suspected to have been hit by a car.
