Vet tech program gets robo dog

Vet tech program gets robo dog

The State University of New York’s (SUNY) veterinary technician program has acquired a robotic surgical canine from Syndaver Labs that will allow veterinary technology students to humanely practice required clinical skills on test subjects.

The synthetic canine is an entirely robotic specimen but can breathe and bleed.

The recent acquisition makes SUNY’s program the first accredited veterinary technology program to acquire a synthetic teaching canine  in New York State, and one of 11 programs nationwide to offer students this learning experience.

The synthetic canine is an entirely robotic specimen but can breathe and bleed. Anatomic features and organs are made from a mixture of salt, fiber, and water.

The dog is anatomically correct and reacts as a real dog would under surgical conditions.
