Meet Instructional Technologist Maggie Lump, RVT and learn all about being a nurse for animals.

Veterinary professionals need to have a thorough understanding of what is on an animal’s inside, in order to keep them happy and healthy on the outside.  Come learn about all the body parts that make up your pet.  The evening will be interactive…radiograph scavenger hunt, skeleton building, and playing with squishy things (but nothing bloody or gross, I promise!)
