First-grade girls learn how to care for animals
First-grade Daisy Girl Scout Troop 2032 recently took a trip to visit with Dr. Peter Bach and his wife Andrea at the Animal Hospital of Cold Spring. The girls are spending the year focusing on how they can care for animals and themselves and how confident that can make them feel, as part of their 5 Flowers, 4 Stories, 3 Cheers for Animals Journey Award Badge.
While at the animal hospital they had the opportunity to ask questions, learn about ways to keep their pets healthy and see one of their leader’s dogs get an examination. They then took a tour of the hospital, getting a chance to see the examination, treatment and surgery rooms.
They looked at X-ray images from before and after their leader’s dog’s prior surgery, as well as various surgical and treatment tools, and they learned how a veterinary hospital team works together to help all sorts of animals.
