Youth learn about being a veterinarian at vet camp
Twelve youth visited the Sac County Extension and Outreach Office for a full day of vet camp on Monday June 5th.
The youth learned about taking care of pets with a very informative talk by Vera Thomas of Early and her dog, Boots.
The youth also learned all about the bone structure of a variety of animals, played a game “Are You Smarter Than a Vet?”, rotated between stations that included giving injections, practicing clipping nails, learning about the ear notching system for swine, listening to heart beats and giving prescriptions to animals.
The end of the day included giving a presentation to the parents to showcase what they learned by playing charades. For more information about the clinic or to join 4-H, please contact the Sac County Extension and Outreach Office at 712-662-7131 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
