Globe University-Woodbury campus Student Chapter of National Veterinary Technicians in America (SCNAVTA) hosted a vaccination clinic fundraiser to help raise money for the Angel Fund for the Hudson Animal Hospital located across the street from the campus.
Students and staff brought in their pets for a variety of services including vaccinations, microchips, heartworm or FeLV/FIV tests, nail trims, and ear cleanings. The students serviced more than 26 cats and dogs at the vaccination clinic fundraiser.
According to SCNAVTA President, Sheila Lambrecht, the event was a “general visit” clinic, and therefore didn’t see much for unique cases. However, a deer tick was found on the floor and the technician educated the owner on Lyme’s Disease.
“This fundraiser gave us the experience of working with pets in a more clinic-type setting,” said Sheila. “It was both an educational and fundraising event, and not to mention fun and rewarding!”
Canine and Feline Services:
- Brief student examinations
- Vaccinations-canine and feline
- SNAP testing for Heartworm & tick borne diseases (canine) and Feline Leukemia/FIV (feline)
- Nail trims
- Ear cleanings
- Anal Gland Expression
“This was a great opportunity for our veterinary technology students to gain hands-on experience with our staff and student’s pets as well as give back to the community,” said Heather Holmgren, SCNAVTA supervisor and veterinary technology instructor.
