In addition to a multitude of educational demonstrations, talks on veterinary medical school admissions and tours of the UF Veterinary Hospitals, there will be a food truck rally featuring local vendors. The ever-popular teddy bear clinic will be back this year, sponsored by the Alachua Veterinary Medical Association. Large groups will have the ability to preregister this year to receive a private tour of the hospitals, priority equine treadmill demonstration access, and a unique Open House Passport to keep.
