They say children are like sponges, soaking up all the information they can. It’s almost as though they can’t get enough. They are fascinated on field trips to police and fire stations, learning about what it takes to have those jobs, perhaps getting to put on the hats and coats, maybe a badge. Watching this video, I discovered they react in much the same way to the veterinary industry.

The children of the Blue Room preschool, along with their teachers, brought their “sick” stuffed pet gorilla, Gary, to the vet. Dan, the veterinary technician and a friend to one of the Blue Room preschool teachers, agreed to take a look at Gary. The children looked on in awe as he checked the stuffed animal’s vitals. Watch how excited they get when they actually get to assist, after putting on protective covering of course. We may be viewing a future generation of veterinarians.
