Neurologist becomes Neuter Vet

This week we were pleased to welcome vet, Katherine Simpson from the UK to the Veterinary Training Camp. She graduated in 2010 and has since gained a great deal of experience in the field of neurology through an internship. We also welcomed back a past student, Claudia Dessaux who spent a week with us in July last year. Claudia spent 3 days at our clinic in Craiova, Romania and we were pleased to see how well she has developed in the past year.

The first surgery Katherine was involved in was a flank spay in a nice lean dog. She was introduced to the knots that you can rely on for a successful surgery. After this Katherine found a variety of dogs and cats on the operating table in front of her. Whether they were young, deep chested, fat, pregnant, in season or slim she perfected the basic techniques that lead to a minimally invasive, efficient surgery. She was also able to apply what she has learnt in surgeries such as enucleation and tail amputation.

After a week in training we are pleased that Katherine will be staying a few weeks longer with us to experience life in a busy Romanian Veterinary clinic. She will certainly get to practice what she has learnt with the Veterinary Training camp and we look forward to sharing experiences with some medical cases.
