The LSU School of Veterinary Medicine will host its 36th Annual Open House on Saturday, January 20, 2018, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.


The theme is One World, One Health. Open House is an opportunity for everyone in the family to discover the fantastic world of veterinary medicine and the latest developments in animal health care, welfare and biomedical research. A self-guided tour will take visitors through the Veterinary Medicine Building, where students, faculty and staff will provide information and exhibits on veterinary medicine and biomedical science. In addition, the anatomy laboratory, intensive care units, surgery suites and radiology suites will be featured on the tour, along with other areas of the veterinary hospital.


There will also be a teddy bear repair station, where children can get their stuffed animals “sutured,” a petting zoo, an endoscopy station where children can “fish” for prizes, and animal demonstrations, such as parades of breeds for both dogs and horses. Equine treadmill demonstrations will be held throughout the day behind the Equine Research Building, as will companion animal underwater treadmill demonstrations.
