Pets Draw a Crowd at PVM’s Homecoming Booth
A flurry of special events and activities last weekend marked the culmination of Purdue University’s 150 Years of Giant Leaps campaign, and Purdue Veterinary Medicine played a role in the celebration. PVM was on display for Purdue alumni, football fans, and community residents in the “Tent Row” that was part of the family-friendly celebration on the Purdue Mall Saturday morning, October 12, before the kick-off to the Purdue Homecoming football game against Maryland.
Small Animal Primary Care Wellness Clinician Lori Corriveau (PU DVM ’99) and her students, Julie Mosher and Carolyn Ellis, both of the DVM Class of 2020, were on-hand at the PVM booth to answer visitors’ pet health questions and provide them with treats for cats and dogs. They also shared information about the importance of flea and tick preventives. Booth activities included a “Wheel of Tick” trivia game, and a “Tick Toss” game, as well as photo-ops with Carmela, the canine companion of Dr. Paulo Gomes, clinical assistant professor of dermatology, and Baby Kitty, Dr. Corriveau’s cat.
