2014 Mini-Vet School
The Mini-Vet School is presented by the Niagara Frontier Veterinary Society and hosted by Medaille College in Buffalo, NY. The semester runs for five consecutive Tuesday evenings in October.
Two lectures are presented each evening by some of the most accomplished and dynamic veterinarians in Western New York cover causes and treatments of the conditions that affect pets and their owners, as well as some of the latest advances in veterinary medicine for zoo animals. Each lecture essentially is a "course" in a subject covered in veterinary school. "Graduates" will receive a certificate but won't be licensed to practice medicine. However, they will have a better understanding of their pet's health.
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.
The beneficial effects of living with devoted and playful pets on the physical and psychological well being of their owners have been well documented. At the same time, pet owners are committed to maintaining the good health and happiness of their faithful pets.
Registration is required. Cost for the 2014 series was $60 per person, with reduced senior and student rates. Registration is limited to 250 people.
