This past summer, Dr. Lennox taught a rabbit procedures lab in Portugal to students eager to improve their exotic animal medical and surgical skills. We used rescue rabbits to learn how to place catheters, take blood samples and place an endotracheal tube to increase safety during surgery. At the end, the rabbits returned to their rescue homes safe and sound.
The course organizer, Dr. Filipe Miguel Reis Martinho sent these pictures from the lab, and we thought we'd share them. It's great to see the increase in interest in exotic animal medicine not just in the US, but all over the world!
