This year was the 4th year Dr. Plantz has helped with the wetlab through the exotics animal club at the U of M College of Veterinary Medicine. On a Saturday afternoon, students who own exotic pets bring them to the clinic. Dr. Plantz demonstrates physical exams, how to do specific diagnostics on each species, and discusses some common medical problems veterinarians often see in them. Then, the students get lots of time to practice handling and doing different aspects of the physical exam on each others' pets. It's a very fun, laid back atmosphere and both the students and Dr. Plantz enjoy it greatly! This year's pets included bearded dragons, an iguana, rabbit, guinea pig, cockatiels, and a parakeet.
