Western College of Veterinary Medicine (WCVM) students at the University of Saskatchewan work with a variety of animals as they train for a veterinary career.

The students host Vetavision every two years and it’s their chance to give people a glimpse of their schooling. Up to 78 students enrol in the four-year doctor of veterinary medicine program every year.

“We love having the opportunity to bring everyone into our college and show what we do and all the different opportunities the profession allows,” Vetavision PR chair Vanessa Fussell said Friday in Saskatoon.

There are over 25 booths featuring different animals, demonstrations and interactive activities at the two-day event. Students hope everyone can learn something new, or even be inspired to enter the veterinary field.

“It’s like human medicine where you can graduate and do a residency and specialize in things like cardiology or neurology,” Fussell said.

Vetavision continues Saturday until 8 p.m.
