Eggar's Experience Extra

A brilliant introduction to veterinary science ...

EE Extra offers opportunities for students to excel beyond the national curriculum, and we were thrilled to welcome two students from the University of Surrey last week. They hosted a hands-on workshop to introduce Year 8s to veterinary science and university life.

The students were taught about animals’ heart rates, how to use a stethoscope and how to measure a pulse in a dog using special physiology models.

They also learned how to care for an injured animal, and they all had a go at bandaging a toy dog.

As you can see, there were some fantastic bandaging skills going on! 

The Year 8s were amazing and grabbed the opportunity to ask the trainee vets plenty of questions and advice.
