What is Vetavision?

Vetavision Q & A

Yes! Vetavision is open to all ages. Please keep in mind that this is a walking-intensive event. If you have little ones who may get tired, bringing a stroller is a good idea! 

Vetavision is geared toward children and families, so we think that most kids would enjoy it!

If you have children who want to be biologists, scientists, veterinarians, veterinary technologists, it's a great chance for them to learn more about these types of careers. Or if your kids just love animals, they especially will enjoy this event! 

Vetavision will get you up close and personal with a wide variety of furry and feathered friends. Please keep this in mind if you or any family members have animal-associated allergies.
Our animal pens can also be dusty with dirt, sand, hay and other potential allergens, so if you have environmental allergies or asthma, please keep this in mind! 
If you expect that allergies will be a problem, please bring your medications, a mask, water bottle or whatever else you need! 

Vetavision has sections both inside and outside buildings, so we recommend that you dress in layers!

Vetavision — like veterinary medicine — isn’t always clean and tidy. Wear clothing that you won't mind if it gets a bit dusty or dirty. 

Wear comfortable, closed-toed shoes. Expect to do a fair bit of walking!

Vetavision is a fun and diverse event, so come prepared! Here are some items that we suggest bringing?

  • snacks and water
  • a sweater if the forecast calls for cooler weather or sunscreen/hat if it’s going to be sunny
  • your phone/camera to capture memories!

This speical evening is a chance for high school and university students to learn more about a career in veterinary medicine and the admissions process. 

PLEASE NOTE: you must register ahead of time for this event if you wish to attend. We ask that registration be limited to only those individuals who are thinking about or intending to apply to the WCVM in the immediate future.

A family member may accompany the prospective student, but we ask that small children or multiple family members not attend in order to have seats available for prospective students. Thank you!

Registration for Vetavision's Pre-Vet Night will open in fall 2024. 

No. For the safety of your animal and the many animals at this event, no outside animals will be allowed to attend — with the exception of certified service animals. You will not be allowed to enter Vetavision if you bring your own animals.

PLEASE NOTE: if your service animal is reacting poorly to the wide variety of animal exhibits, we ask that you avoid those booths including animals for the safety of you, your service animal and all animals in the Vetavision exhibits. 


Vetavision invites school groups and clubs to take a tour of the Western College of Veterinary Medicine (WCVM) during our public open house.*
