2017 Mini-Vet School

The Mini-Vet School is presented by the Niagara Frontier Veterinary Society and hosted by Medaille College in Buffalo, NY.

The human animal bond is well documented. The beneficial effects of living with devoted
and playful pets on the physical and psychological well-being of their owners impacts
emotions from affection and trust to healing. At the same time, pet owners are committed to maintaining the good health and happiness of their faithful pets.

In the middle of these beneficial reciprocal relationships between humans and animals are the dedicated and competent practitioners of veterinary medicine who strive with consummate training and skill to cope with the myriad of diseases and injuries that affect these animals.

NFVS and Medaille’s Mini-Veterinary program is where people and science come together. You will learn about the causes and treatments of the conditions that affect your pets, as well as some
of the latest advances in veterinary medicine.

The Mini-Veterinary School is a five-week series of lectures by the most accomplished and dynamic veterinarians in the area.

For two hours Tuesday evenings October 3, 10, 17, 24, 31, they will lead you on a fascinating journey of discovery.
Each lecture will be a “course” in a subject covered in veterinary school.

Mini-Veterinary School graduates will not be eligible to practice veterinary medicine, but will have a better understanding of their pets’ health! They will, however, receive a certificate attesting to the completion of 10 hours of veterinary science.

Registration is required. Cost for the 2017 series was $60 per person. Individual dates are $20 (reduced rates for students & seniors). Registration is limited to 250 people. Contact ehudson@medaille.edu to register.
