LVH In the Community: Olivia’s Day at the Vet!

Leesburg Veterinary Hospital - Future Vet

Last week, we welcomed 6 year old Olivia to our practice. Olivia gets to have a special day each year where she chooses just one thing to do with just her and her Mom.  This year Olivia told her Mom she wanted to see what it’s like to be a vet!  Her Mom posted the question on social media and we were able to set up Olivia’s special day.  Our Office Manager, Melissa, gave Olivia an extra-special tour of the hospital then let her take part in veterinary tasks such as checking a dog’s heartbeat, ECG, and palpations.  With the help of a little peanut butter, our resident-in-canine-helper dog, Elphie, lended a paw (or 4!) for the demonstration!

If your children, school, church group, etc., are interested in taking part in a similar experience, please contact us – we’d love to open your children’s eyes to the exciting world of veterinary medicine!
