    Yes, Bud went to our Suture Class by Dr.Bones and Nurse Amy in Florida. Our classes are 2 hours and include wound care and cleaning, dressings, when to close and when to leave wounds open, choosing proper closure methods, how to select and inject local anesthetics, plus each student gets their own pig's foot for practicing during the class. We also include hands on instruction and practicum for stapling skin. We are dedicated to teaching people proper suturing, wound management and stapling techniques. The classes are really educational and fun! I'm glad Bud was happy!!
