Event Description

Animals touch our daily lives from the food we eat, the products we consume, the health care advances we benefit from, and the services, entertainment, and companionship we enjoy. Wildlife species add to the beauty and wonder of our world. The connection between wildlife, domestic animals, the environment, and humans is called "One Health" and this concept is the foundation for veterinary medicine.

The 2013 Open House, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on April 27, will explore the One Health concept with special exhibits and discussions on the connection between animals, the environment, and people. The popular annual event also will offer the traditional opportunities to get up close with various animals large and small, special canine demonstrations and displays, and chances to talk with faculty and students. Fun and informative tour stops explain advances in veterinary medicine, veterinary medical technology, best care practices for the family pet, and what it takes to become a veterinarian.
