In this program, students may, depending on the week, be introduced to veterinary surgery by performing mock surgeries and bone-settings, research common afflictions such as canine distemper and rabies. They may also explore various methods of diagnosis, including how to detect pain through physical examinations and how to analyze imaging from x-rays, MRIs, and CT scans. Bill Snell, the Medical Director of Blue Pearl Specialty and Emergency Pet Hospital in Charlestown, MA, is a veterinary surgeon and has assembled an amazing team of fellow veterinarians to lead our program. Students visited his hospital last year, and we have amazing plans for the upcoming season!
