Veterinary summer camp at UF.

Veterinary summer camp students William Pfadenhaver, front, and Isaac Sommer learn about the anatomy of a gopher tortoise from Sarah Purcell, a veterinary technician with the zoological medicine service. Twelve students came to each of two sessions of the camp, officially known as the UF Veterinary Summer Academy. Both sessions featured behind-the-scenes visits to Disney’s Animal Kingdon, a horse rescue workshop, clinical rotations in the UF Veterinary Hospitals as well as a pathology lab experience, a scavenger hunt and video presentations.
