Jo Perry: Experience with Vets Go Wild 23/07/2014

Day 6:

Jo’s sixth day started at 4:30am, today was the day where Jo and her fellow students finally had the chance of doing some veterinary work with White Rhinos.
At the reserve, the Vets Go Wild students were divided into 3 teams, each one responsible for 2 animals. Dr Fowlds would dart one Rhino at a time from the helicopter, then the team would be in charge of caring for the animal. Some of the tasks that were done were monitoring the heart rate, breathing rate and temperature of the Rhino, administering drugs to deepen or lighten their level of anaesthesia, and collecting samples for DNA testing, including blood, hair and skin samples.
