The College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) at Western University of Health Sciences will hold its eighth annual Open House from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 6, 2013 along the campus’ Esplanade at 799 E. Second Street, Pomona, Calif.

The Open House is a way for the College to reach out to the community and introduce WesternU and CVM. It also gives guests an opportunity to learn about the veterinary profession, pet care and animal awareness.

CVM students and clubs host booths on pet care and provide tours of the College and Banfield, The Pet Hospital, which is the veterinary training facility for the University. Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts earn scouting merit badges and fun patches as they learn about various aspects of animal care. Aquarium of the Pacific’s Aquarium on Wheels, K-9 unit demonstrations, shelter pet adoptions, pet microchipping and pet vaccinations also will be available.

This year should be just as exciting as last year, when more than 1,000 Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, as well as hundreds more children and their parents from all over Southern California, converged on the WesternU campus.

The Open House is free and open to the public.
