Workshop to focus on pet health, safety

Thursday, April 14, 2005 | 12:00 a.m. CDT; updated 6:17 a.m. CDT, Sunday, July 13, 2008

On Saturday, veterinary students will hold a pet emergency workshop at an open house sponsored by MU’s College of Veterinary Medicine.

The student chapter of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care Society plans to show visitors how to check a pet’s vital signs, how to recognize signs of heat stroke, what to do in case of injuries of being hit by a car, and about common toxins and basic animal restraint.

The workshops will be held at 11 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., and each will be about an hour long. Participation is free, but registration for the workshops, at the main information booth, is required.

The open house on Saturday is from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The location is in the Veterinary Medicine Building at East Campus Drive and Rollins Street.

The open house will also showcase a police dog demonstration, a petting zoo and mule wagon rides, among other animal attractions.

Students will also demonstrate their recent work in the development of new technologies and techniques.
