Houston PetSet has partnered with Texas Litter Control to offer veterinarians scholarships to attend a two-day class focused on high-volume spay and neuter best practices and techniques as outlined by the Association of Shelter Veterinarians Standards of Care. The goal of the class is to increase efficiency in spaying and neutering cats and dogs by teaching high-quality, high-volume surgical techniques and protocols.
The class offers students a one-on-one, hands-on wet lab. Training will include various surgical methods to improve efficiency and students will be exposed to between 25 and 40 spay/neuter surgeries per day.
Classes will include: pre-surgical physical examination procedures; patient selection; discussion of expected outcomes and higher risks; patient anesthetic monitoring and recovery; introduction and usage of high-volume surgical techniques (ligatures, ovarian pedicle ties, incision placement theories); review of individual student techniques including efficiency of motion and body mechanics; instrument review; and identification and management of complications.
Students will observe noticeable increased speed and efficiency in spay/neuter surgical techniques by the end of the training. Successful completion of the class will provide students with 14 CE credits.
Scholarships for veterinary technicians also available.
