TORONTO, May 28, 2015 /CNW/ - What are the strangest things that vets have seen pets eat, and what are the most common toxins that bring pets to the ICU? Did you know that there are new breakthroughs in cancer treatments for pets? How can you help your pet live their longest, healthiest life?
These and other topics will be discussed in depth at the Mini-Vet School®, a series of four engaging evenings featuring two one-hour talks each evening. The series will be held on Tuesday evenings in June at the Purina Pawsway at the Harbourfront Centre in Toronto.
A success in Ottawa for the past seven years, Mini-Vet School offers the general public a rare opportunity to hear experts discuss animals in society and animal nutrition, behaviour, health and welfare, as well as various aspects of the veterinary medical field.
The series is hosted by Community Veterinary Outreach, a registered charity that provides free preventive veterinary care for marginalized pet owners who are homeless and/or vulnerably housed. Its One Health engagement initiatives include the community-level collaboration of veterinary and human healthcare providers to cooperatively improve the health and welfare of both humans and animals.
Workshops and lectures are delivered by respected local veterinarians and animal health professionals, and space is limited. The cost for adults is $90 for the series, $80 for series students and seniors, or $25 per evening.
