Assistant professor of emergency and critical care Daniel Fletcher has led the creation of the simulation vet care center at Cornell University
The center evolved from the use of a pioneering robotic dog simulator back in 2010
Students at Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine can train in a simulation center to get realistic, hands-on experience of veterinary care
Medical students have been honing their skills on human simulations for years and Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine has been using the world's first robotic dog simulator Robo-Jerry II and Robo-Fluffy, his feline counterpart, to give aspiring vets experience since 2010. The robo-pets now have a new home in the form of a new robotic simulation center the University claims is the first of its kind in the world, with work underway on a more advanced robotic dog called "Butch" that will boast more realistic features and which will run on cheap, standard components.
