Mini-Vet School is a five-week series of lectures by the most accomplished and dynamic veterinarians in Western New York. For two hours each week, they will lead you on a fascinating journey of animal discovery. Program details are available by clicking the following:

Each lecture is a “course” in a subject covered in veterinary school. Classes are on Thursday evenings October 6th to November 3rd from 7-9 pm for five weeks on the Daemen University campus on Main Street, Amherst, NY. Some classes are interactive so smart phones/i-Pads are suggested.

Mini-Vet is designed for animal lovers, pet owners, someone interested in a career in veterinary medicine, etc. Animals have a documented beneficial effect on our physical and psychological well-being. Educating ourselves on animal health can help ensure that our beloved companion pets and wild animals receive the best care possible.
