Plans are underway for the 2017 PVM Open House to be held next Saturday, April 8. Coinciding with Purdue's Spring Fest, the annual open house with the theme, "The Key to a Healthy Pet is as Easy as Pie," welcomes visitors to Lynn Hall 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with special events featured throughout the day, including visits from the Columbian Park Zoo, Indianapolis Zoo and Midwest Search Dogs. Fan favorites will once again be returning to the open house including the petting zoo, tours of the Priority 4 Paws mobile veterinary clinic, interactive exhibits for children, hospital tours, and equine treadmill demonstrations featured at 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. with limited tickets available. Be sure to stop by the new "Dunk a Tech" station near the petting zoo and learn about the important role veterinary technicians play in veterinary medicine and test your throwing skills with the dunk tank.

Visitors can curb their hunger with the ever popular food tent, which will be selling hamburgers, pork burgers, hot dogs, pulled pork, baked beans, applesauce, beverages and snow cones to raise money for the Food Animal and Equine Clubs. PVM gear will also be available for purchase in the west lobby of Lynn Hall.

The College has held a Saturday-only open house annually since 1963, when the first class of veterinarians graduated. For more information, visit the college's Facebook and Twitter accounts, or view the open house website. A news release on the event was published in Thursday's Purdue Exponent.
