The last past  few days at the clinic had been truly interesting. I have been was able to see how a Tibial Tuberosity Advancement (TTA) and Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy (TPLO) surgeries are done.  On Monday I was able to see a removal of three lumps on a dog, the three of them where lipomas, the most common tumor in large breed dogs.  Tuesday was a very long day, 12 hours of continued work. Definitely I was able to see a lot of fascinating cases, there were two intoxicated pets, a dog that ingested pills, and a cat that ate some rodonticide. A rat came in with lice, usually rats area not consider as pets in my home country. I was able to perform a spay on a dog. A doctor with special interested in radiology came in to perform a biopsy on a dog that has a tumor in this rectum, he took the tissue example guided with the ultrasound, and we where able to drain some of the liquid from the mass. We are waiting on the biopsy results.


Los ultimos dias en la clinica has sido my interesantes.  Pude ver como se lleva a cabo una cirugia de Avance de la Tuberosidad Tibial para el tratamiento de la insuficiencia del ligamento cruzado anterior (TTA) y Osteotomia nivelada del plato tibial (TPLO).  El dia lunes pude precenciar la remocion de tres lipomas en un perro, el lipoma es el tumor mas comun en perros de razas grandes. El dia martes fue un dia muy largo, 12 horas de trabajo. Definitivamente pude ver varios casos fascinantes.  Dos pacientes intoxicados, un perro que tomo muchas pastillas y un gato que comio veneno para ratas.  Llego una rata como paciente, en mi pais las ratas no son consideradas mascotas.  Realice una castracion de una perra. Se llevo a cabo una toma de una biopsia de una masa ubicada en el recto de un perro, la muestra se pudo obtener con la ayuda del ultrasonido, estamos a la esperamos los resultados del laboratorio.
