AlphaGenes visited the new Large Animal Hospital and Hospital for Small Animals guided by Miguel Gozalo-Marcilla, Senior Lecturer of Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia.
First, he guided us around the new Large Animal Hospital and visited the stables, where we were educated about the most common equine diseases and disorders. This was followed by observing surgery of a bull under general anaesthesia and then we “got hands on” with some equine-specific dental surgery tools.
The tour was rounded off in the Hospital for Small Animals (dogs, cats and exotic animals). Miguel showed us the operating rooms, the intensive care unit and the well-equipped medical imaging section. The medical imaging suite included capabilities for radiography, endoscopy, ultrasonography, computer tomography and MRI.
The tour gave us all a new found(land) appreciation of the clinical work performed at the Vet School and insight into the connections between our areas of research.
