Park West vet lets kids be a vet for a day

Park West Veterinary Associates held their second annual Be-A-Vet-Day at their office off Park West Boulevard on April 9. The day is a chance for children 8-12 who are interested in becoming veterinarians to have the opportunity to come in for a morning and experience what a day in the life of a veterinarian is like. Over 100 kids got some hands-on experience working with equipment and seeing what Park West doctors do every day. The stations included: Viewing and using x-ray machine, learning how to use an ultrasound machine and what the images look like, listening to a dog’s vital signs, learning how to run a typical annual physical, and learning how to get prepared for a surgery and how to suture up a surgery site.
