What you'll learn in this kids animal care class:

What do you do when a tiger has a tooth ache or an elephant has a sore foot? How do you anesthetize a fish or an aardvark? Does a walrus say "ah"? In this afterschool class, students will learn about the different aspects of zoo veterinary medicine taught by WCS veterinarian Dr. John Sykes. 

Classes involve real veterinary medicine equipment and supplies. Students gain an appreciation of what zoo veterinarians do every day and how animals at the zoo are cared for. Topics range from physical exams and anesthesia to internal medicine. Parents are welcome to observe the classes or drop-off.
