Roland-Story students from the animal science class visited with Dr. Brenda Bright recently at Heartland Vet Hospital about the topic of “cytology” as they have been studying animal diseases on how to best diagnose them.

In the class’s most recent unit of instruction, the students have focused on diagnosing various symptoms of diseases that commonly impact animals.

According to instructor Brad Taylor, “We appreciate the community support such as what Dr. Bright and Heartland Pet Hospital have done for our students. It’s great to know that we have local resources available to help us in providing students with information. Today’s demonstration has allowed the students to see firsthand how professionals go about doing their jobs and it provided us with a new method of preparing slides for analytical work.”
