A longtime community tradition, the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine Open House will intrigue and entertain audiences of all ages during a full day of educational demonstrations, tours and much more from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 13.

The event is free and open to the public. Snacks and College of Veterinary Medicine merchandise will be available for purchase.

Numerous educational exhibits and demonstrations will take place throughout the day. Members of the police and sheriff’s office K-9 units will be on hand to provide bite and odor detection demonstrations. Visitors also will be able to see canines using an underwater treadmill and horses using a high-speed treadmill.

Tours of UF’s large and small animal hospitals as well as the shelter medicine clerkship area will be provided, and veterinary students will offer a teddy bear clinic for people who bring their damaged stuffed animals for repair.

Pet adoptions featuring local shelter animals also will be available, as will information about veterinary school admissions.
