Students and staff at the Minnesota School of Business-Plymouth shared their love and knowledge of animals with the community, as the vet tech program ran a camp to educate youth on different aspects of animal care, behavior and other veterinary-related activities.
The class was a morning of all things animals. Children learned animal behavior signals, how to appropriately approach animals, dental care and other facets of the being a vet.
They also had the chance to work with different veterinary tools dealing with microchip sensing, eye examination and heart care. Students also had the opportunity to tour the veterinary facilities at MSB, which included kennels, x-ray and surgical areas.
“The future vet day is a fun event that provides our students with the opportunity to interact with the community in the role of an educator,” Program Chair Mary Oberson said. “This is excellent preparation for their futures as certified veterinary technicians.”
The program is offered on a quarterly basis in conjunction with the Plymouth Parks and Recreation Department. The next date of the camp has yet to be determined.
