At North Hobart Veterinary Hospital we aim to involve ourselves in our community and show you the role pet ownership and care plays in our lives. Here are just a few of the things we have enjoyed this year:
Kinder/Primary School: We welcome school children to tour our hospital and observe our day. Many children find introduction to the health industry far less confronting in a veterinary surrounding. Our kind hands on experience with our calm hospital animals includes: finding the heart; looking for fleas; examining the teeth and talking about x-rays etc. You even get to dress up as a Vet – we all have a great time! All we ask is that after your visit you draw us a great picture for display in our waiting room.
Secondary School: Our work experience program is in high demand with the limited number of places rapidly allocated. Through the week students work in different areas and complete a list of tasks that give them a taste of what we see as a rich and fulfilling career.
Tertiary Level: Our hospital regularly hosts Veterinary students during their practical experience placements.
International Students: Each year we accept 1-2 international students for their practical experience program. So far we have had students from Germany and France.
Dogs on the Domain: This annual event organized by Hobart City Council celebrates the human animal bond and the richness dogs bring to our lives.
Santa Paws: now a regular fixture on our calendar, Father Christmas spends a day with us to have his photo taken with our four legged friends.
Christmas Appeal: Now into its third year this event is a chance for those families in need to receive a gift for their animals and lighten their load over the Christmas period.
Café treats: having approached a number of dog friendly cafes we now supply individually wrapped treats for dogs to nibble whilst they wait for their owner.
