SB-Tampa Veterinary Technology Program Held its First Pet Health Fair on September 20th

October 8, 2014 SBI-Tampa, Give-Back, Veterinary Technology 0 Comments

This event served as an open house for the SBC Tampa's program of Veterinary Technology, as well as a gathering of community Animal Service organizations to share information and promote the care and health of pets throughout the community. Students provided services and information, and a few organizations also had animals for adoption on site.

The students participated in interacting with community members and their pets through: Taking medical histories, brief physical exams where Temperature, Pulse, and Respiration where assessed, as well as discussing preventive medicine-including vaccinations, as well as heartworm and flea prevention, and regular visits to the veterinarian. The students also organized a dog wash, nail trims, and ear cleaning.

The Veterinary Technology program at SBC Sanford-Brown College Tampa had its First start in May and since then has grown to a total of 20 students. Students have already shown a great deal of interest in being active in their community. They have taken on helping to fundraise for a local rescue group who helps critically ill and injured pets. The students baked dog cookies, human goodies, and had several items available for a donation that went 100% toward the rescue group. They recognize the need in the community this group fills and are eager to help in any way they can. The students were also able to meet and network with other local organizations in the community.

Members of the community were able to come see the campus and tour the veterinary technology lab/classroom. They were able to obtain information on the program, and were also able to meet other clinics/businesses related to animals with the community. They were able to speak with the vendors who offer pet services, as well as with students and have their pet assessed. Community members could also have their pet bathed, nails trimmed, and ears cleaned. Food and refreshments were available and many organizations had information pamphlets and giveaways.
