Dr. Mailler, our vet, was our guest speaker today at Toddler Tuesday in celebration of World Veterinarian’s Day. She taught us some interesting things about being a veterinarian. She taught us how she tells if an animal is sick. She showed us their bones on X-rays and taught us how to use a stethoscope. She taught us that the larger the animal the slower the heart rate. A cow’s heart beats 40-70 beats per minute and a rabbit’s beats about 120-150 times a minute.
We ended class in a fun way.. check out our veterinarian internship program. There was some major surgery going on.
They were able to keep their scrubs and stethoscopes so they could perform some procedures on their stuffed animals at home. FUN!
