Dr. Scott Presents to Daisy Troop!

Upstate Veterinary Specialties’ Emergency Doctor, Dr. Ellen Scott presented at Albany Shaker High School last week to a local Daisy Troop. The girls are earned their Animal Journey badge and learned the similarities between taking care of yourself and taking care of your pet. Dr. Scott did a hands-on presentation with Chase, the French Bulldog; showing them general care and gave them each a chance to listen to Chase’s heartbeat with her stethoscope. She also taught them about the importance of a proper diet, exercise, and dental care; as well as the basics to a physical exam and why you need to bring your pet to the vet for a checkup every year. We were very excited to be able to help these girls earn a new badge!
