Week one has finally come to a end. It’s unreal how fast time is going. Two of my favorite experiences happened in the last days of week one. First was working with the pigs, pigs are actually my favorite livestock and favorite to handle. We got to hold and restrain piglets that we’re just a few days old to pigs that were over 200 pounds. We were able to administer, iron shots to the piglets and vaccinations to the older piglets. At the same farm we were also able to administer dewormer to his herd of sheep. Then my next favorite day was taking part in a spay and neuter clinic in one of the districts of Belize. My partner and I did physical exams on many dogs, one cat and a bunny! During the physical exam, we had to get a weight, heart rate, and respiratory rate and also administer dewormer wether it was oral or injectable. We also got to assist surgery and suture up our dogs. Week one has been extraordinary I can’t wait to see what’s yet to come.
