Girl Scout Troop 6603
recently visited the Lincoln Animal Hospital.
Dr. Stephanie Deneke did an amazing job presenting the hospital to
the Girl Scouts. They saw X-rays of animals' broken bones,
pregnant puppies and objects animals had swallowed. She also showed
them tapeworms, larvae, fleas and more. She walked them around each exam
room, explaining different machines and reasons she uses the exam
rooms. She also showed the pharmacy area and explained how some of
the medicine is the same for animals and humans, but lots of
medicines are different. The girls were able to hold a couple of
kitties and pet a couple of dogs. The Scouts left the hospital as even
bigger animal lovers!
As a thank-you, the girls braided dog toys at the meeting prior to
the visit. Thanks to Dr. Deneke's help, the Scouts -- Daisies, Brownies
and Juniors -- earned a variety of animal badges.
Girl Scout Troop 6603 is led by Mrs. Joslyn Mathon.
