Plans include more than 40 exhibits, demonstrations, and hands-on activities, involving plenty of animals, for all ages.
For the first time, kids may bring their fuzzy friends to the Teddy Bear Repair; however, live animal visitors are not invited. The event is open to the public and registration is not required.
Visitors may step inside the Clinical Skills Learning Center, a key component of the new Illinois integrated veterinary professional curriculum. The new facility provides a low-pressure environment for students to master clinical techniques in surgery, imaging, emergency medicine, and other areas using animal manikins, simulations, and state-of-the-art teaching equipment.
