We love it when kids show a keen interest in veterinary medicine, so our Crookham Park team were thrilled to be joined by an eager-to-learn local Scouts and Cubs group this month.
They were very excited to go on a tour of our operating theatre to see all the equipment. They had the chance to meet nurse Sarah’s loveable one-eyed cat, Scrappy and receptionist Tina’s dog, Rosie, as well as listen to their heartbeats and learn how to care for them.
We taught them about bandaging, using a stuffed animal, and had great fun with plenty of games to get their brains working, including guessing the weight of the tortoise, matching different footprints to the right animal and guessing how many blood tubes in the pot – with prizes available for the best predictions!
No one left empty handed, as all the Scouts and Cubs took a goodie bag home, with a tasty cupcake made by our talented vet Helen – as well as lots of new knowledge and skills!
We’d like to say a massive thank you to our amazing team: Abbie, Anna, Sarah C, Sarah H, Tina and Yulieth, for sharing their expertise and making the evening a great success and to the Scouts and Cubs – you will make great vets in the future!
