    The operating theatre

    INSIDE THE WINNIPEG HUMANE SOCIETY’S ANIMAL HOSPITAL: Staff — and there are four vets, five animal health technologists, and six vet assistants/receptionists — spay or neuter between 20 to 40 animals, perform one or two complex surgeries and complete 100 examinations, treatments and lab tests to get their furry friends ready for adoption. And that’s just a typical day.
