Shadow Externship

Oct 3, 2023 1:10PM

I shadowed at Bloomsburg Animal Hospital in Bloomsburg, PA. Here, I had the opportunity to gain experience in wellness and medical visits, surgical rotations, and dental procedures. Pictured above is a cat that had an enucleation conducted. It was originally thought that since there was no swelling around the eyelid, only in the eye, this could have been caused by a progressive infection. However, while in surgery, a mass was found behind the eye to have been causing it be inflamed and bulge. The eye and a part of the mass was removed. It would cause difficulty to attempt to remove the entire mass because of the risk of affecting the optic nerve.

Thanks for sharing the very interesting case to be able to watch. Sounds like you have a great location for shadowing.
