On Wednesday 5th October, the L6 prospective vet students were fortunate enough to be able to visit the Veterinary Lab Agency in Itchen Abbas. The afternoon, centred on pathology, was highly informative and gave us a great insight into the workings of the lab.
One of the sessions focused on how to perform a post mortem on a wide variety of species; the other provided a more ‘hands on’ approach as we were educated about the parasites and bacteria which are common causes of illness in animals. Our visit concluded with plenty of valuable advice on how to put yourself in the best position to apply for vet school. Overall, we all found the visit to be very beneficial and it was extremely successful.
