Meetings Spring 2017
Meeting details may change without notice.
Meetings to be announced -
World Rabies Day Vaccine
Clinic - Dates TBA. Location and more details coming
This clinic has been held in conjunction with saint francis fest
in the past, but was moved to April this year. It will give
experience to veterinary students to practice their physical exams
on both dogs and cats, as well as help the first years prepare for
their annual anatomy palpation exam! This is also a chance to
communicate with clients and educate them on heartworm prevention
as well as vaccinations and general health of their animals.
Last year the vaccine clinic went really well!! We had 19
volunteers, vaccinated 76 dogs and cats, and microchipped
approximately 20-25 dogs (and 1 cat)! Thanks so much to the
Aggieland Humane Society, Dr. Snowden and Dr. Craig for helping us
make this clinic a success! We distributed AVMA pamplets on
heartworm disease, parvovirus, and spaying/neutering pets in both
English and Spanish. We really hope this helped out the community
Wienerfest - Fall 2017 (Details TBA)
Wienerfest is put on by the Aggieland Humane Society as a
fundraiser every year. There is more information available at http://aggielandhumane.org/wienerfest/.
There will be wiener dog races, 'wanna be a wiener' races, costume
contests, a 5K walk/run and lots of vendors and doggies! Vet
students will be helping with registration of all the pooches,
making sure their vaccines are up-to-date.
Wienerfest is a lot of fun for the volunteers, especially when
we have some free time to watch the wiener races! Over 200 dogs
participate in Wienerfest and the event raises quite a bit of money
for the Aggiesland Humane Society!
