Pawesome’s Colorado Spay Clinic is a 6 day spay-cation that combines an intense four day surgical training curriculum with community based animal welfare efforts. Our program is designed to provide the opportunity for veterinary students, and licensed veterinarians, to grow their confidence in spay and neuter techniques and decrease surgical time, offer technicians the chance to develop HQHVSN experience, and provides support to some of Colorado’s most important rescues by offering our service to them.
We will partner with Litter Free Lives, who works closely with the Colorado rescues to provide HQHVSN services, and basic medical treatments including; core vaccine, rabies vaccine, flea & tick spot on, worming treatments, micro chipping, and other as needed services.
Our program is structured to provide one day of assessment and training as a warm-up, and three full days of surgery. Each trainee can expect up to four surgeries per day. Individual numbers for each trainee will vary depending on skill level and competence.
When you are accepted into the program you will work side by side Pawesome’s lead veterinarian who is a veteran of HQHVSN, and our amazing team of veterinary technicians.
All surgeries are performed on rescue animals that require sterilization prior to adoption. Patient care and patient needs are always our top priority. All surgeries are performed under gas anesthesia. Prior to beginning any surgical procedure trainees will be individually assessed, and skill level evaluated.
