Congratulations to the Varsity Cheer and Dance Teams were invited to participate in the APSU Homecoming Parade on Saturday.  

Animal Science

Animal Science had a great time last week on our field trip. Mr Brandon Butts, veterinarian technician at Animal House Vet Clinic, took the students on a tour of the facility. The students were able to view the large and small animal treatment areas, view a mobile vet truck, surgery room, x-ray room, patient kennels, and boarding kennels. While at the clinic some animals were receiving treatment, to include 2 dogs that had been attacked, a dental treatment, a cat being prepped for surgery, and a horse with a nosebleed. At the end of the tour the owner brought in a lame cow. The students were allowed to view the examination and diagnosis. The cow was placed in a flip chute, which allows the medical staff and animal to be treated in a safe environment. The cow had a rock embedded in her hoof, which had caused an abscess to form. The rock was removed and the hoof will be treated with medication. Dr. Cory Goodlette and Vet. Tech,Candace Swaffer, were the attending medical staff for the cow. Candace is a graduate of Clarksville Academy.
