Field Trip to a Vet

Today was Cutie Pie’s class trip to visit a vet’s office.  It was so close that we were able to walk from the preschool.  I’m sure we made quite a sight crossing a major road in one long line of tiny children and adults. Once at the vet’s office we were greeted by the most adorable set of stairs!  I love the purple paint and paw prints!

We visited with the doctor and her two-year-old son in one of the exam rooms.  She showed us all of her exam tools and gave each of the children a piece of paw-printed bandage.

Mr. Teddy Bear was in the operating room for a bad stomach ache.

One of the veterinary technicians showed us how they use a “cat bag” to handle crazy cats.  It was pretty funny trying to imagine stuffing a wild cat into a bag…

After a short story about animal helpers, the children picked up their goody bags (complete with Scooby snacks) and we headed back to school.  If we had animals and needed a vet, I would totally take them to the office we visited today!  The staff was so sweet and the office was so charming!

    What an adorable class trip! I don’t think I’ve ever heard of one to a vet…and would think for so many children it can be frightening when their pet is ill. Thanks for sharing the story and the photos of the trip. Love that the patient was a teddy bear!
