First Rat Castration Surgery

Yesterday I successfully completed my first surgery, a rat castration!
Granted it isn't a surgery done every day in clinics but it's great practice for rabbits and cats with similar principles being applied.
We learnt how to administer and monitor anaesthetics, about the procedure and then suturing afterwards.
We did seven rats between us which all went well and the rats have all been adopted by vet students.
