Calling all animal friends and future veterinary professionals! Youth Veterinary classes will be held this summer at WestVet.
WestVet is excited to announce introductory veterinary classes for children this summer in Garden City. VetStart classes will be led by Veterinary specialists and professionals and held at our veterinary hospital. If you have a child in your life that is considering working in the field of veterinary medicine, VetStart classes are a great way for him/her to enjoy some hands-on learning.
Classes will be held on three different Saturday mornings during summer months. Designed for students who will be enrolling in grades 2 through 6 in fall, VetStart students will practice bandaging, perform veterinary exams, explore x-rays, read microscopic submissions, and more! Plus, each student who enrolls in class will receive a white doctor’s coat as a keepsake.
Even better? All proceeds from VetStart tuition will go to The Audrey Pet Foundation, a 501(c)3 non profit fund that provides financial assistance to pet owners facing economic hardship. The Audrey Pet Foundation—affiliated exclusively with WestVet—provides assistance for veterinary emergency and/or specialty treatments. The funds are combined with donated time from our WestVet veterinary specialists. Applicants may receive a discount of up to 50% on their veterinary expenses and care, enabling them to pursue necessary treatments for beloved pets. Eligibility for assistance is based on a sliding scale of income and household size.
We have just three VetStart classes scheduled for Summer 2014 and with a class size limited to 20 students, we encourage interested patrons to enroll early to secure a spot for the future veterinarian in your life.
We hope you’ll join us!
