Creation of Be Kind To Pets Veterinary Educational Videos is part of the requirements of internship at Toa Payoh Vets.

The following video was created by Daphne Ang who had interned at Toa Payoh Vets in 2010. She would start her veterinary medicine studies in Australia soon.

Hi, Dr Sing

I have done the video but the narration is a bit soft but I haven't found out how to make is louder.. I couldn't send it to you through email
as the file is too big so i uploaded it onto youtube so you can see it. I will delete and edit it to your preference. So please take a look
at it and give me your comments(:

The following are my comments:
1. Echoes are heard during the narration.
2. Positioning of microphone may have caused the voice to be soft or you are soft-spoken lady. You need to breathe in, relax and speak?.
3. There are gaps of silence.
4. Maybe too many slides of the actual surgery 
5. Use the following:

Introduction -  Puppies are like toddlers. They just cannot be trusted and will swallow any object any time. In this case, a 3-month-old German Shepherd puppy pounced onto the caregiver's hairband while she was bending down to clean the poop from his crate. Immediately, the hairband was swallowed. Would it be passed out? It costs money to get it out and after waiting for 5 days, the owner decided to get the surgery done.

Middle - The gastrotomy. Basically, the stomach is incised at the avascular area. There are 3 layers of the stomach wall. These are incised and the incision is around 2 cm. The hairband is pulled out. First, the submucosal layer is stitched with inverting sutures, then the two other layers are stitched twice with inverting sutures. The stomach is put back into the abdomen. The muscle layer is stitched with simple interrupted sutures. The skin layer is stitched with horizontal mattress sutures. 

End - the outcome

Final Video was re-made in 2019 by Intern Simone Ku"
