Brothers Safaris Veterinary Student Course - Buffalo immobilisation and disease testing - Monday went well despite some students being a little " shell shocked" at first, as usual. The group was soon into it and by lunch time we had immobilized and disease tested all 24 Buffalo. We then attended to a buffalo calf with an eye problem before paying a visit to Frontier Vets Grahamstown.
Several days of lectures and a dart gun practice, the Texas A&M vet students are ready for their first practical tomorrow - 24 buffalo immobilisations for disease testing! In the meantime a malnourished spotted eagle owl juvenile reported outside one of the vet lecturers door this morning for assistance..... The students are doing a great job hand feeding him and nursing him so far!
