SPC Programs & Events Comments Off on Veterinary Technology Campus Open House Brings the ‘Awwwww’ 99

St. Petersburg College’s Veterinary Technology campus celebrated Veterinary Technician week with an open house featuring a campus tour, refreshments, valuable tips to keep pets healthy, and information about the veterinary technician and technologist programs on campus on October 15, 2014.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the future looks bright for veterinary technicians and technologists. Veterinary technicians and technologists work everywhere from theme parks and farms to local veterinary practices. Students and alumni were on hand to answer questions about the program, and what it is like to work in the field. SPC students also ran the tour of the campus, including the surgical, anatomy, and biology labs. Representatives from Busch Gardens, South Eastern Guide Dogs, Therapy Dogs International, the Humane Society,  and the Florida Veterinary Technicians Association set up tables to discuss their work.
