We Invite You to Join Us!

Come explore with us the field of veterinary medicine.  Even if you are still considering other career options, we invite you to investigate the field with us. We provide you with information for applying to vet school and tips for strengthening your vet school applications.  We'll also have some hands on experiences, like suture night with Dr. Fuller (a local vet), a zoo and aquarium tour, lambing, an inoculation clinic, a c.p.r./ first aid clinic, DVM @ Washington State University Day and meetings with the DA from WSU's Vet Program, touring Oregon State University's Vet Clinic, Chopstick Night, and volunteer opportunities!

Local veterinarian, Dr. Fuller, instructs the pre-vet club on how to suture, using a chicken breast in the demo.     A pre-vet club member smiles for the camera as she holds up the chicken breast just worked on during the club's suture night
