Sample Video 90: Veterinary 5: Explore! Life as a Dog

For this episode of Explore! we focus on the lives of our canine friends and ask the big picture question, “How can we better understand our own senses by comparing them to how a dog experiences the world?” Students meet and interact with Radar, a four-year-old terrier mix and with Dr. Ed Migneco, veterinarian at Hillside Animal Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri. They’ll discover fascinating facts about a dog’s five senses, and explore what it’s like to hear, see, smell, touch and taste the world from a dog’s point of view. We investigate x-ray machines and learn how they help a veterinarian diagnose a dog’s medical condition. And through it all, we compare what we learn about dogs to a human’s five senses and how we experience the world.
