Vet College will host annual open house

Teddy bear surgery, a dancing dog demonstration and veterinary hospital tours are just some of the activities available at the open house sponsored by students of the College of Veterinary Medicine on April 6 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

This annual event will focus on veterinary medicine as a career and will demonstrate the variety of career options available to veterinary medicine graduates.

Other activities will include horseshoeing, egg hatching, face painting, a parade of dog breeds and question-and-answer sessions with current veterinary students. Children may assist while veterinary students suture their favorite stuffed playmates in the Teddy Bear Surgery area. In addition, tours of the small and large animal hospitals will be available all day, with scientific exhibits showcasing every kind of animal from dogs to horses to exotics. Vendors will sell refreshments and UGA merchandise. Admission is free, and the event is open to the public. Parking will be available at the softball complex on Milledge Avenue with shuttles running to the college throughout the day.
