Students Find Puppies Through Use of Various Diagnostic Technologies

Posted by on June 8, 2012


The Minnesota School of Business Veterinary Technician Program on the Blaine Campus had an interesting case this spring. A dog named Clover came to them from Underdog Rescue group for routine care. The rescue group thought that she may be pregnant so they took radiographs of her to check to see if any signs of pregnancy could be identified. There were some signs of pregnancy but no obvious puppies. The VT 181 Imaging Instructor, Julie Oglesby, CVT,  suggested students check her with the ultrasound, so the radiology students did that, and could identify four puppies!  The students were very excited to see the moving puppies and beating hearts. They learned about the different diagnostic technologies available in veterinary medicine to image animals, and how they can use that in their careers upon graduation from the program.
