Every year we look forward to opening our doors to aspiring veterinarians and animal lovers of all ages for the College of Veterinary Medicine’s annual Open House at the Veterinary Teaching Hospital.

Hosted by our veterinary students, faculty, and staff, the event provides an opportunity for those interested to learn more about veterinary medicine and a chance to meet our team of dedicated veterinary professionals committed to providing the best care to your pets.

The Teddy Bear Clinic is an Open House family favorite where children are encouraged to bring a stuffed animal, get scrubbed in with veterinary students, and assist with surgery. And for those who enjoy a good walk or run with or without their pup, sign up for the the Royal Canin Canine Canter 5K. Other events vary from year to year, but you can expect family-friendly activities; plenty of animals, large and small; displays and activities led by the college’s various clubs; and a visit by Butch T. Cougar.
