Dr. P has been teaching Ireland about using a stethoscope to listen to heart sounds of animals. First, Ireland listened to her own heart because it is slower and much easier to hear than an animal that has a fur coat, breathes irregularly, and most importantly, does not sit still as you can see from these pictures taken at Marty's Place when DR. P was there to monitor this fawn's health.

Borneo Orangutan Zoom Presentation
88 people signed up for Dr. P's presentation last night. For those of you that missed it here are a few photos.
His presentation was recorded by the Petoskey library. That link will be posted here in a few days once the library sends it to him.
Until then, if you want to learn more here are links to his Borneo trips on the LBAH web site:

Update on Larry
Dr. P did an exam on Larry today to make sure he has recovered from his surgery. He ate well overnight, and by the speed at which he evaded Brianna and Ireland when they tried to catch him for the exam, he is doing great. His incision is healing and he has no fever, so it looks like he is well on his way to a complete recovery.
After Larry's exam Dr. P did a post-operative review of Larry's anesthesia and surgery with Ireland and Adrianna. These two budding veterinarians learned about anesthetic doses and administration, along with more details on the surgery and post operative care.

Larry's Big Day
Larry the 5 year old ram at Marty's place was getting a little too aggressive, so Megan asked Dr. P and Dr. Nurse to neuter him. With the assistance of pre-vet students Ariana and Ireland, everything went as planned and Larry is on his way to healing. ...
These two pre-vet students have been present at rounds with Dr. P as he is training MSU extern Jennie Nyugen. They are getting good experience working with the fawn at Marty's Place for Animals under the guidance of Megan. She is experienced at just how much milk the fawn should drink at each 4 hour feeding.
Dr. P is helping out at a wildlife sanctuary with deer, bison, and elk, along with farm animals.
This fawn has been fed every 4 hours for 2 weeks, and it will continue for 10 weeks. This is a testament to the dedication Megan shows for all of the animals she cares for at Marty's Place For Animals (m.facebook.com/martysplaceforanimals/) ...
Wildlife Photo of the Day
Dr. P took these photos recently. Any idea what species of this bird is?
More importantly, without looking it up, do you know what the chick of this species of bird is called? It's a funny name for a baby bird. You gotta wonder how people name birds sometimes!
