For those who want to be a vet one day or have a keen interest in working in the veterinary field and are interested in an academic camp program. The Pawsitively Pets Mini Vet Camp has a three-level, hands-on program to walk kids through the key aspects of veterinary medicine and working in an animal hospital and other animal health and wellness fields  Mini Vet 1, Mini Vet 2 & Mini Vet 3 will be available for the 2024 Summer.

Campers will be introduced to veterinary medicine and learn all about what it takes to be a vet and what you need to take in school.  Please note this program has three levels, and different components happen in each course.  Mini Vet 1 focuses on Pet First Aid & CPR, Mini Vet 2 focuses on a case study, radiology, parasitology and how to diagnose different illnesses.  Our Mini Vet 3 program works on various procedures, mock surgeries, large animal veterinary medicine and more. For the Mini Vet 3 program, campers will participate in off-site field trips.

Throughout the three-level program, participants will have the chance to look at what it is like to work in the vet clinic, learn how to give injections and mock surgery, and complete a full pet wellness exam. Please note different aspects of Mini Vet happen in each level. It is recommended campers take each level in order. Mini Vet 1 & 2 must be taken to participate in Mini Vet 3.

All Mini Vet programs have hands-on interaction with the animals each day.

All Mini Vet 1 participants receive a pet first aid kit, Mini Vet 2 a scrub shirt and Mini Vet 3 a stethoscope with their registration.
