|Nektaria with one of her patients|
The VTC finished the year with Greek Vet Nektaria-Lefkothea Tzourou. She is currently working in the UK and joined us to increase her surgical confidence particularly with bitch spays. As she had completed a fair amount of work spaying cats we focused on different types of dogs. Small, large, fat, skinny, deep chested, puppies, pregnant and in season all landed on her surgery table during her time with us and she was able to take everything we could throw at her! She mastered the techniques and knots that make up a safe, minimally traumatic surgery and her surgical time reduced as she became more familiar with the movements required. There were a few memorable moments during her stay including the power cut mid surgery. We concluded if Nektaria is able to operate on all of the different types of dogs found here in Romania then the relatively ‘normal’ dogs in the UK should hold no fear for her. We cannot wait to hear how she gets on putting into practice her improved skills after her experience with the VTC. We wish her all the best for the future and hope to stay in touch.
