Vet Academy!

Learn about veterinary medicine firsthand from a Zoo Atlanta educator in this program aimed at families with children 5 and up through teens. Veterinarians don’t just care for the domestic animals we have at home. Some vets care for animals that you see in the Zoo, at other accredited zoos or aquariums or even in the wild.

Do you like to solve puzzles? Since animals can’t talk to us, veterinarians must figure out what’s going on with their patients through problem-solving, observational skills and application of knowledge.  Veterinarians must find all the clues they need to piece it all together and find out what an animal needs. Participants will learn about and problem-solve real-world scenarios that veterinarians handle on a daily basis.
