During the Christmas break Pam Gomes, a teacher at Coeur d’alene High School, brought 11 of her Biology and Biomedical high school students to the Hayden Pet Medical Center for a demonstration surgery by Dr. Bodkin. The group observed and participated with a live surgery demonstration of a spay surgery of a dog. One lucky student actually got to scrub in and help with the surgery. By the end of demonstration there were a few students (still) interested in veterinary medicine. Pam has been bringing students to the Hayden Pet Medical Center since 2012
This female Mallard duck was brought in by two little ladies after she was hit by a car. The duck was treated for a few days for neurological signs and recovered with no lasting ill affects. It took about a week to start eating well and gain her weight back. She was released on Hayden lake and within a few minutes she paired up with a very good looking boy friend. We at the Hayden Pet Medical Center love helping the local wildlife.
Meet Stinky. This adorable cat was brought in by a concerned person after he was hit by a car. When he arrived his lower jaw was fractured in several places and he was comatose from shock. The emergency treatment worked, he survived two jaw surgeries and wore a hideous head gear apparatus reminisces of the 1970s for over 5 weeks. This entire time Stinky was unable to eat, but he tried with great effort. He was tube feed daily causing a build up of food particles around his head gear and even under his tongue, hence the name “Stinky”. Well, now the head gear is gone and he is eating great. Stinky has recovered from his injuries and may need one more surgery to correct his bite and teeth. The big news, he is looking for a home. If you are interested in giving Stinky a home please let us know. The last surgery will be done at no charge here at the Hayden Pet Medical Center as well as his first vaccines and worm check.

Deanna has been doing some volunteer hours to complete her necessary hours to acquire her eligibility to set for the Idaho Board of veterinary technician examination. Deanna was concentrating her studies on the use of in-office blood analyzers and working with exotic pets. She showed very good potential with working with the exotic. Veterinary technicians must know how to restrain, pull blood and give injections to many different type of exotic pets. Deanna will do very well in the veterinary field.
Tiarra has completed the volunteer hours needed for her High School Senior Project. Her Project is a study of “Breeds verses Personalities”. She should do well on her project.
Mister Bates is the November pet of the month. He is a regular at the Hayden Pet Medical Center and well loved. Mister will bring in Thanks Giving.
