After veterinary school, veterinarians have the option to go directly into private practice or to pursue additional focused training through internships and residencies. Dr. Loose chose to pursue another four intense years of specialization to become board certified in emergency critical care medicine and surgery. It is because of this additional depth and diversity of training that has allowed her to maintain a level of services above that typically provided within the house call environment.
