Roanoke, VA – Have you ever wanted to be a veterinarian? Do you want to learn more about animals and how to take care of them?

Come learn about what it takes to care for our unique animals and meet local veterinary professionals.

Dr. Zoolittle Day promises a day filled with crafts, games, and keeper chats that bring the world of veterinary medicine to life. Local animal clinics and their talented staff will be on hand to showcase their skills, perform demonstrations, and share fascinating insights into animal care. It’s a perfect opportunity for young aspiring veterinarians to get a behind-the-scenes look at the veterinary sciences.

Guests are encouraged to bring their favorite stuffed animal friend for a special health check-up! Local veterinarians will be on hand to make sure your cuddly companions are in tip-top shape.
