Dear Clients of the Lloyd Veterinary Medical Center,
It was the Wednesday of Spring Break when word came that the clinical year students were unexpectedly being sent home due to COVID-19. Fourth-year veterinary students in their clinical year work all year round as they put into practice their training of the previous three years by working in our hospital. They perform essential functions in the hospital – and they were gone! Suddenly our hospital was missing close to 150 students but the patients still needed care.
