Mini Vet School at Animal Wellness World
Animal Wellness World is offering a Mini Vet School on April 25 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. for ages 9-14, so they can experience being a veterinarian firsthand. Each child will receive a stethoscope and scrub top and attend different activities. They will learn about a physical exam, horse care, surgery, X-rays, examining parasites under a microscope, dog obedience and behavioral training, and pet nutrition.
