Four County receives training dog for vet program

Four County Career Center’s Veterinarian Assistant program recently added a SynDaver surgical canine to their program for training purposes for the students. The SynDaver surgical canine is made of water, salt and plant-based fibers and the school hopes it will be “a wonderful tool in teaching the students animal anatomy and surgical procedures as part of their lab training” and that it will “enable the students to have additional hands-on training while they complete the veterinarian assistant program at the career center.” Pictured from left are Veterinarian assistant student Alexis Resendez (Defiance), veterinarian assistant instructor Stephanie Pippin and Project Manager of Veterinary Engineering at SynDaver Labs, Melanie Allen.
