 Review from April 2019 attendee:

 “My objectives of the course were fulfilled: foreign body removal, biopsy techniques, learning the endoscope, and handing the scope.
Pros of course: Small class six, Comfortable location, Great instructors!!! My new heroes! Great equipment, very hand-on from first hour.
Loved the course!  Would recommend to others.  Will come back for advanced course.”  Azalia Boyd, DVM

One week later- More from Dr. Boyd:

“Last night, Veronica and I successfully performed our first endoscopic procedure! 
First off, Veronica was amazing! It was very valuable to have her by my side. I would continue to encourage technicians to attend your sessions. 

Working with the pigs were similar- almost exact in structure.

At the end of the procedure, I called the client to inform her that we were successful at obtaining the large beef bone (suspected deer antler). She was delighted and called me a miracle worker, as she was already preparing herself for us having to do a gastrotomy. 

Thank you both again. The endoscopic course you both offered was professional, gave real life situational cases, and proved extremely helpful. I am looking forward to taking another course with you to continue and advance these skills.” Azalia Boyd, DVM
