In all, 25 vets will be on hand at the hospital, in the clinic, lab, ER, and in areas where the following operations will occur surgery, anesthesia, x-rays and ultrasounds. Per month, close to 1,320 consultations are to occur, as well as 1,320 x-rays, 550 ultrasounds and 1,320 lab exams. Surgeries are to include both male and female castration (220 per month), cancer treatments (110), and orthopedic operations (110). [1]
