PetEd Visits

Our clinic organises educational, fun and informative pet visits to schools, kindergartens, nursing homes and dementia wards as part of our community service.  

The school visit scheme is run along Australian Veterinary Association guidelines and is recognised as a wonderful educational resource for children of all ages.  

We are so blessed to have passionate, enthusiastic nurses to run this program, and they cheerfully take along a range of furry, barking, meowing and buzzing creatures to their school visits.

  

Every few months, we pack up rabbits, birds, dogs, kittens, dung beetles, lizards and other creatures and travel to local primary schools on Yorke Peninsula to teach lessons including the responsibilities of owning a pet, safety around pets, and healthcare.

Have you ever seen 30 children all screaming with delight as dung beetles run up the boys' arms? Or a child who has been scared of dogs finally sitting quietly patting a faithful visitor?

Nothing beats the wide-eyed amazement of children as they pass around soft rabbits, or a lizard as it eats an insect. An educational experience not to be missed.

We have also been involved with such visits to church groups and playgroups. Our vets have been speakers at a variety of church functions and CWA meetings, as well as Neighbourhood Watch meetings.
