We offer gift experiences for children (or adults) age 7 and older. This is the perfect birthday gift for the aspiring veterinarian. Start with a tour of our 20,000 square foot emergency and specialty veterinary hospital. Learn about x-rays, take some x-rays of your favorite toys. See our CT scanner, MRI, linear accelerator, blood lab, surgery suites and more. Then, choose from among the following lessons:
- Heart and circulation - Learn about the path of blood through the body, dissect a real heart, participate in a live echocardiogram on a live dog
- Digestive system - Learn how the digestive system works, see some crazy x-rays, and videos of endoscopy. Then get your hands on a real endoscope and learn how to use it
- Vet Tools - Learn about some of the tools vets use, and perform some real veterinary tests: Centrifuge blood to get a red blood cell level, make a blood smear to see real dog and cat blood samples under the microscope, use an ultrasound machine to see inside a real live dog!
- Surgery - learn about the principles of surgery, learn about surgical tools, see videos of actual veterinary surgeries, and then dress up as a veterinary surgeon and perform your own surgery (on bananas) using real surgical tools and suture!
This experience is for 1 to 15 children, lasts for approximately 2 hours, and does NOT include a party space or food. We are a working veterinary hospital and do not have the ability to host "parties."
