Child examines a donkey at Junior Vet Day

Opening Times

Sorry, this event has passed

Designed for 11-15 year olds interested in a career in veterinary care, experience what it's really like to 'be a vet for the day' with The Donkey Sanctuary's Junior Vet Day.

This is an exclusive opportunity for children considering a career in veterinary care to discover what first-rate equine veterinary care actually involves, brought to you by The Donkey Sanctuary: a global centre of excellence in donkey welfare.

Veterinary work experience for under 16s is very rare, so this fascinating and insightful experience has been specifically developed to provide children with a taste of veterinary work in a real-life setting, which can help shape and influence their future career path.

Aspiring junior vets will work with the sanctuary's qualified veterinary staff to learn how to diagnose and treat Hettie, the poorly donkey, from in-depth examinations, medication, anatomy, pathology and dentistry to hoof problems and surgery. There will of course be some time for donkey grooming too.

Each child will receive a comprehensive workbook to complete during the day.

The Junior Vet Day is based at The Donkey Sanctuary's new, state-of-the-art donkey hospital at Brookfield Farm near Honiton, Devon and places cost £120 each.
