Below are some interesting images of
what you can expect at the upcoming Vet School Open House, as well
as a short description of the event itself.
A boy scout
examines radiographs (images from x-rays) on a light viewer at Open
House. From left to right the images are a sting ray, a cow skull,
a pig head, a horse leg and a dog chest.
Bring your own stuffed animal or purchase
one at Open House and be a real surgeon! You'll get to enter our
real surgery suite in full surgical garb and assist one of our
student surgeons in Teddy Bear Surgery!
A young girl examines some very unusual
specimens in our pathology exhibit. Pathology is the study of
disease processes, in this case a siamese twinned piglet.
Come see miniature horses pulling carts
and jumping obstacles at Open House!
Did you know the AKC recognizes over 150
different breeds of dogs? Learn about many different breeds at our

Vet School Open House started in 1993 as a small showcase of the
college's facilities with a petting zoo. This event has grown into
a massive day of animal-related fun incorporating the entire
veterinary complex coordinated by hundreds of vet students and
undergrads for people from all over the state. We open all the
doors to the college and both hospitals and let the public see
exclusively behind the scenes of Texas A&M's premiere
veterinary school. There are tours through both the small and large
animal hospitals, many different exhibits for rescues and
organizations, tons of demonstrations by all kinds of animal groups
(agility dogs, trick horses, etc.) and animal exhibits galore!
There's a petting zoo, a reptile room with hundreds of scaly
friends, even fistulated cows! We'll also feature a Q&A panel
with both vet students and the admissions committee so you know how
to prepare for vet school if that's in your future.
You will get to see and learn about all the different aspects of
veterinary medicine and best of all, it's free! There's no
registration required either, all you have to do is show up and
enjoy your visit. Thousands of people visit the college for this
event every year, of all ages and backgrounds, and everyone really
enjoys it! There's definitely something for everyone. This year we
have a lot of great things planned already! As the date gets closer
there will pictures, schedules, and more details posted to our
website so check back for more information. Or search for us on
facebook to be a fan and get updates directly. Thank you for your
support of Open House!
