WestVet is pleased to offer classes that enable young people to learn some of the ins and outs of working in the field of veterinary medicine, in today’s blog, details on how you can enroll and join us!
Calling animal friends and future veterinary professionals! VetStart is returning summer 2015.
Kids (ages 8—11)– Tues. July 28; 6–8 PM
Youth (ages 12—16)–Thurs., Aug 13; 6—8 PM
Led by veterinary specialists and professionals from WestVet, these classes enable youth considering a career in the field of veterinary medicine to enjoy some hands-on learning.
Students practice bandaging, perform physical exams, explore x-rays, read microscopic submissions, and more! Plus, each student who enrolls receives take-home keepsakes.
Even better? All proceeds from VetStart tuition go to the Audrey Pet Foundation(APF), a 501(c)3 non profit fund that provides financial assistance to pet owners facing economic hardship. APF—affiliated exclusively with WestVet—provides financial assistance for veterinary emergency and/or specialty treatments for families facing economic hardship. Funds are combined with donated services from WestVet specialists and doctors. Applicants may receive a discount of up to $1200 on their veterinary expenses. Eligibility for assistance is based on a sliding scale of income and household size.
Previous VetStart classes have filled quickly. We encourage interested patrons to enroll early to secure a spot for the future veterinarian in your life.
