Oh my gosh I know eh they do it in like literally minutes. However, I was helping to assist students who were learning so it would take like 30 minutes maybe for males and one spay took 4 hours...So I had to moniter her heart rate and breathing for that long which was fun, but after awhile the stethoscope gets hard on the ears. We had to use anesthetic machines that are not alarmed or have screens. We have to learn how to depend on our own instincts rather then the relying always on machines before we learn those ones.
oh wow that sounds intense, but yea pretty darn cool...though poor doggie
I watched a cancerous tumor get removed once it was so gorey all the vessels that feed them.
How long have you volunteered for?
