You Can Be a Veterinarian Camp offers a rare opportunity for kids in San Diego to practice veterinary skills, interact with animals, and gain experience with equipment they might use in the future! Whether aspiring veterinarians come to the Internal Medicine and Surgical camps, or come to just one, they are sure to have fun.
Exotics Physiology Lab: You will get to show off your dexterity as you perform a dissection on a paper frog. You will also get an up close encounter with one of our frogs and discover why amphibians are so unique.
Equine Care & Management 101: Learn about the different aspects of equine care and the roles of the veterinarians, technicians and assistants while visiting the Equine Hospital.
Veterinary Surgical Nursing 100: Meet and pet a snake while learning about a life-saving surgery that our Chief of Staff Dr. Patricia Carter performed on one of our scaly friends. Campers will practice surgical suturing of incisions on a life-like model.
Basics of Canine CPR & Intro to Anatomy: Practice fundamental CPR techniques on a canine training model and view a respiratory demonstration. You will also get to put your anatomy knowledge into a creation that is yours to keep.
Lagomorph Parasitology 100: Interact with a rabbit and learn about the parasitic organisms that can affect these small mammals and others. You will view slides of parasites under a microscope and discuss different treatment options.
Species may vary depending on animal health and safety.
*Campers are responsible for bringing their own water bottles and snacks for snack time.
