Today was our first “learning” day. Dr. Tesecum, who is the veterinarian of Paws Vet Clinic and our main mentor of our program, gave us a few lectures in the morning. We later had the opportunity to visit his clinic, Paws Vet Clinic, to learn how to suture. We practiced two basic sutures, simple interrupted and the reverse version or “buried” on chicken breasts. After practicing several times, we even had a chance to watch Dr. Tesecum spay a female cat.
