The LSU School of Veterinary Medicine’s 34th annual open house is slated for 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.
It is free and open the public. Donations are welcome.
Self-guided tours through the veterinary medicine building include students, faculty and staff providing information and exhibits on veterinary medicine and biomedical science. The tours include the anatomy laboratory, intensive care units, surgery suites and radiology suites, along with other areas of the veterinary hospital.
Other features include a teddy bear repair station where children can get their stuffed animals “sutured,” a petting zoo, an endoscopy station where children can “fish” for prizes and animal demonstrations such as parades of breeds for both dogs and horses, a news release said. Equine treadmill demonstrations will be held throughout the day behind the Equine Research Building, as will companion animal underwater treadmill demonstrations.
Participating groups include the Louisiana Capital City Obedience Club, the Baton Rouge Kennel Club, BREC’s Baton Rouge Zoo, Magic Happens Rabbit Rescue, Working Animal Guide Society of Louisiana, the Capital Area Animal Welfare Society and more.
