Kids Corner Visits MVS

July 8, 2019

On the 17th June, MVS had fun showing children from the Kids Corner around our small animal clinic and giving them a taste of some of the things our vets do each day. The tour started as many vet visits start- on the scales! Then, guided by vet Sarah and nurse Esther, a trip to the treatment room and surgery to see where sick animals are treated, the x-ray room and the hospital- saying hello to some kittens on the way. Everyone had the chance to dress up in gloves and masks like our vets do for surgery, and to listen to the heartbeat of our lovely gentle doggy ‘patient’ Bailey (a Golden Retriever owned by nurse Kristie). We had a look at some different models of bones and teeth, as well as a giant flea! The trip ended with some fun- giant glove balloons (these gloves are used by our farm vets, but we had fun giving giant high-fives). Thank you to the children of Kids Corner for visiting us and showing your interest in what we do at the vets.
