Dr. Elizabeth Miquel
Dr. Miquel, a veterinarian at Essex Veterinary Center, visited middle school students at Mater Christi, along with a beautiful and healthy Golden Retriever. Dr. Miquel, along with two of her assistants, performed an echocardiogram on the dog in the science room in front of the students. An echocardiogram is a non-invasive procedure used to evaluate the heart.
Afterward, students were able to pet the dog, give her treats and listen to her heartbeat through a stethoscope. This hands-on physiology lesson allowed the students to learn about how the canine body functioned.
