For Immediate Release: January 17, 2020

BATON ROUGE—The LSU School of Veterinary Medicine will host its 38th annual Open House on Saturday, January 25 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the LSU SVM on Skip Bertman Dr. This event is free and open to the public, though donations are welcome.

Open House is an opportunity for everyone in the family to discover the fantastic world of veterinary medicine and the latest developments in animal health care, welfare and biomedical research. A self-guided tour will take visitors through the Veterinary Medicine Building, where students, faculty and staff will provide information and exhibits on veterinary medicine and biomedical science. There will also be a petting zoo, a teddy bear repair station, where children can get their stuffed animals “sutured,” and animal demonstrations, such as parades of breeds for both dogs and horses. Companion animal underwater treadmill demonstrations will also be held throughout the day. Other groups participating in our Open House include BREC's Baton Rouge Zoo, Magic Happens Rabbit Rescue, the Capital Area Animal Welfare Society (CAAWS), the Companion Animal Alliance, and much more!
