Izabela Returns to Small Animal Surgery with Style!
Our latest camp attendee was Polish vet Izabela Swierczynska. She graduated 7 years ago and has been working since then in the UK with large animals . We had the pleasure of reintroducing her to small animal surgery.
She started small with cat spays and worked her way up to large dogs. She coped well under pressure with some fairly delicate uteruses which were a haemostatic challenge.
Her surgical time improved over the course of the camp but more importantly her technique was consistently safe and of a high standard.
She was also able to perform two enucleations and the majority of a 3kg splenectomy during her stay as well as assisting in a few other surgeries.
In between surgeries she also participated in a few medical cases and whatever we threw at her she met with the same positive attitude. We are sure she would make an excellent small animal vet and look forward to hearing how she develops her skills in the future.
