Thank you so much for the great course and the great time, Luis and Judy are awesome. This was an excellent experience and an outstanding course!!
I have learned so much and I found the course one of the best courses I have attended. I feel so much more comfortable with surgery after only a week, definitely an invaluable experience for my future.

Clara Garcia

I progressed from complete inexperience in surgery to being able to complete a bitch spay by myself. I also refreshed my catheter, sedation and injection skills.

Noel Coulson

This course exceeded any expectation that I had. I imagined that the first two days we would be confined to a chair and a desk as our mentors would theoretically talk about different techniques/anaesthetics procedures used in bitch spay. I couldn’t have been more wrong. We arrived at Scooby on Monday and as soon as the brilliant staff brought the first dogs we were doing bitch spays.
There are not enough words to describe the amazing mentors Luis & Judy. They are incredible!! They are great vets and magnificent people. They helped me to be a better vet in every way, and more important than that a better human being.
Thank you very much Judy, Luis and the amazing staff at Scooby!!! I will never forget this experience!

Stefana Trufin

The course was great, I learnt so much from Luis and Judy-they were excellent teachers. I have gone from worrying about spays to now being comfortable in what I am doing and can’t thank them enough. It was a fun and enjoyable experience and I would recommend it to all.

Mia Kalyvides

I discovered an interest in shelter medicine I had no idea I would have. Charity practice has never appealed to me but I will certainly be volunteering in the future based on this experience.

Carolyn Hilton

It has helped me speed up with surgery and I also feel calmer in more stressful situations now. I have a lot more confidence to get on with everything from surgery to even consulting.

Jojo Hurren

It has allowed my bosses and senior vets to trust me more with doing spays on my own.

Charlotte Mooney

This course has given me a stronger confidence in my abilities, and I think this will be reflected on the quality and the value of my work. I also think it will make it easier for me to find a good job.

I would absolutely recommend it to any friend who wanted to better their surgical and professional capabilities or anyone not confident enough in their surgical abilities.

Iratxe Sendino

Has helped me a great deal so far – has increased my confidence with other procedures as well as spays. I have already recommended it to my new graduate friends.


I now not only feel confident with my spays but also efficiently opening up the abdomen and performing proper surveys which will be invaluable for other abdominal surgeries.

Simone Cuttler

During the course I met lovely people and regarding to improvement and confidence it was great as now I feel confident enough to perform routine surgeries and I know what I’m doing, what I’m looking for and how I have to react and what I have to do when inconveniences happen.

Olatz Iglesias

I learnt tricks for effective spaying. (I didn’t expect) that I could spay bitches on my own.

Ibone Anza

I didn’t expect to be completely confident doing the spay by my own and I am 🙂 This is going to help me a lot in my daily work.

Carmen Valdivieso

I learned to be patient. I can do things that I thought I couldn’t do in the past.

Clara Acuña

It made me feel more confident with what I am doing and prepare me that I just need more practice.
