Scientists in Action: Vets and their Pets

Program Description

Have you ever dreamed of being a vet? Maybe you still do! Whether furry, feathered, or scaly, animals both exotic and domestic capture our hearts and enchant our minds. Go behind the scenes with a veterinarian from the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at Colorado State University to explore how veterinarians care for animals, from dogs to donkeys to dolphins. No stethoscope required as your students get to ask a real vet questions and discover how a love for animals can become an exciting science career.
