Open House petting zoo

Spring has sprung which means plans are well underway for the Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine Open House scheduled for next Saturday, April 15 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Lynn Hall. The student-run event is a highlight for the college each year allowing the campus and greater Lafayette community a chance to learn more about the veterinary profession, get a glimpse into student-life at Purdue Veterinary Medicine, interact with and learn about a variety of animals, and inspire the next generation of veterinary professionals.

Held each year in conjunction with the College of Agriculture’s Spring Fest, the event gives visitors the opportunity to experience a free, fun-filled day on campus with educational activities the whole family can enjoy. Some of the activities planned for the Open House include practicing anatomy and ultrasound skills, learning animal training techniques, and teddy bear surgery for stuffed animals needing a little TLC. Visitors also can participate in a variety of special events including the popular equine treadmill demonstration in the Donald J. McCrosky Equine Sports Medicine Center, wildlife and K-9 demonstrations, guided tours of the Purdue University Small Animal Hospital, and much more! Open House guests also will be able to visit the ever popular Petting Zoo with a variety of farm animals on-hand including chicks, sheep, and horses. Food and drinks will be available for purchase in the food tent with proceeds going to the college’s Food Animal and Equine Clubs. Click here to learn more.
