Day 2

Second day at the vets this week.
This morning I saw a tom cat castration, 2 dog eye surgeries - one dog had a lump on its lower eye lid that needed to be removed and sent for biopsy, the other had a lump on its eyelid that needed to be removed on one eye, and the other eye had an ucler and the eplithelium wasn't forming right and not binding to the surface of the eye. So they used a flourescent dye to stain the eye, they used a scalpel to scrape away the epithelial layer, then a fine needle to create a grid on the surface of the eye to help it heal and bind together. Next the guinea pig was in from the consultation yesterday and it had its growth removed, some investigative surgery on a dog and a ferrel cat spay was done - the cat was still in the trap and the vet nurses had to use grabbers to get it out.
