Lisadell Equine Hospital invites applications for our 2022 internship positions. We are seeking motivated, hard working and inquisitive individuals to join our dedicated team. We are a first opinion and referral equine hospital situated 30 minutes north of Dublin. Our ambulatory practice attends a wide variety of clientele from professional show jumper and eventing yards, to single pleasure horse owners, to our largest clients in the thoroughbred breeding and racing populations. The ambulatory practice feeds into our equine hospital which offers state of the art care for our clients and our referral population. We offer a wide array of diagnostics and perform a diverse selection of surgical procedures, most commonly upper respiratory, arthroscopy, fracture fixation and various other elective and emergency procedures.
