Mini Vets

The perfect camp for the aspiring veterinarian!

For those who want to be a vet one day, or have a keen interest in working in the veterinary field. The Pawsitively Pets Mini Vet Camp has a three-level hands-on program to walk kids through the key aspects of veterinary medicine, and the daily life working in an animal hospital.

Campers will be introduced to veterinary medicine, learn all about what it takes to be a vet, and what you need to take in school. In addition to getting certified in Pet First Aid, participants will have the chance to work in the vet clinic, learn how to give injections, watch a surgery, complete a full pet wellness exam, and learn all the techniques to do their own surgery on a banana over the three-level progam! Our hands-on banana surgery will include operating on the banana, and complete suturing. Campers will learn the basics of radiology, parisitology, large animal veterinary medicine, and have the opportunity to work on their own "medical case."

Pawsitively Pets Refund Policy:

Refunds for camps will be made if requested in writing, by fax or email and will be refunded in accordance with the schedule below. Credit can be obtained for the full amount of the refund to use towards another program if the guidelines are met, and the program date is within the same calendar year.

Refunds on credit card or in the form of a personal cheque are subject to a $25 administrative fee (per camp session/per child,) deducted from the total allowable refund.

Refunds in the form of personal cheque may take up to 4-6 weeks for processing.  Refunds will be issued in the format they were originally paid.

Pawsitively Pets reserves the right to grant exceptions to the stated policy in situations including, but not limited to, illness and death in the immediate family.

No Refunds for Partial Camp Attendance or Illness:

We do not give refunds or credits when someone chooses to leave camp part way through, whether due to illness or any other reason.  Virtually all of our expenses are incurred before the start of the camp week.  Similarly, we cannot give refunds or credits to people who have registered for more than one session if they choose during their first session not to attend another session.  (The exception to this is if we are able to fill the spot with someone on our waiting list.) 

Extreme Circumstances:

(Someone in your family is told they have 6 months to live, your house burns down, etc.) 

By all means, contact us!  We're not heartless.  We may ask for some kind of documentation and explanation, and we'll be more flexible if we hear from you sooner rather than later.  We'll consider all situations individually.  

Extended Care Refunds:

To receive a refund for extended care notice must be provided in writing 30 days before the beginning of your camp session.

Camp will take place in all weather conditions - should camp need to be cancelled due to extreme weather - campers will be notified the morning of the program and offered a credit for that day.
