Join us behind the scenes for a special hands-on experience of veterinary medicine and the inner workings of a real animal hospital!
Held several times each year, Kids' Day at The Drake Center is a free program for students ages 8 to 12.
During the hour-long event, children and parents are invited behind the scenes for an exclusive, hands-on experience of veterinary medicine and the inner workings of a real animal hospital.
Participants will also have the opportunity to:
View various slides under a microscope
Examine X-rays of broken bones, foreign body obstructions and pregnant animals
Learn about the importance of preventative care, such as home dental care and flea control
Assist a veterinarian with a routine physical exam on a live dog or cat
Dress for surgery in a gown, cap and gloves
Perform a mock procedure on a stuffed patient
Each child will also go home with a small gift.
While this event is free, space is limited. For dates and reservations, please contact The Drake Center at (760) 753-9393 or [email protected]
