WWV Labs


Looking for something extra? Our exciting, small-scale labs offer hands-on experience, taught by industry professionals who will give you personal feedback. This is the moment to practice your skills or learn new ones, and ask all the questions you've always wanted to ask.

"It was an honor to attend the Small Animal Soft Tissue Surgical Principles Wet Lab at New York Vet. I got a chance to learn new and brush up on the old techniques of wound closure, cystotomy, gastrotomy, and enterotomy from some of the best in class Boarded Surgeons and Surgery Professors around North America. The Johnson & Johnson lab made me register for the next year’s show on the same day!"

- Dr. Gurk Singh -

Take a Look at our 2021 Labs!

Labs for Wild West Vet 2022 will be announced soon.

Cranial Cruciate with Orthozip

This hands-on workshop will be a comprehensive exercise in extracapsular repair of the canine cranial cruciate ligament. The laboratory portion will cover the lateral approach to the stifle, removal of the cruciate remnants, inspection of the meniscus and an overview of the meniscal release. Stabilization will be applied using the lateral suture technique with a focus on proper suture placement using proven isometric points. High strength orthopedic adjustable locking loops (OrthoZip by Everost) will be placed isometrically using Orthozip posts and tightened. All attendees will have their repair critiqued by an experienced surgeon.
