Advanced Veterinary Care is pleased to announce their first Pet Awareness Workshop Series (PAWS) Exotics Encounter.
This class will be held on Wednesday, February 8 from 3:30 to 5:30PM and will be open to high school and middle school aged students. Students interested in a career in veterinary medicine are strongly encouraged to attend. Enrollment is limited and classes will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Light refreshments will be provided.
Ever wonder what’s inside a turtle’s shell or how much food a hamster can carry inside its cheeks? Come get the answers to these and other questions at AVC! The PAWS Exotics Encounter will be an interactive, hands-on workshop with lecture and laboratory components. This class will be taught and supervised by an experienced veterinarian. The species covered include:
- A Lessor-Sulphur Crested Cockatoo
- A Hedgehog
- A Bearded Dragon
- A baby Florida King Snake
- A Leopard Tortoise
The focus of this class is the unique anatomy and physiology of some of the rarer pets veterinarians see on a daily basis. Students will examine the animals, interpret x-rays, and discuss species adaptations. If you have a student who has an exotic pet or is interested in animal medicine, this class is not to be missed. You can register your student through our website and a confirmation will be sent via e-mail. Registration is $40.00 per student and can be paid by cash or check the day of the workshop.
