Welcome to CUVZS!

Cambridge University Veterinary Zoological Society (CUVZS) is a student-run society dedicated to all things exotic. We hold weekly talks at the vet school, usually on Thursday evenings, from renowned speakers across the UK (and always featuring drinks and yummy food!). From raptors to rhinos, we recognise that there is a lot more to the animal kingdom than dogs, cats, horses and farm animals. More and more exotic pets are arriving in first opinion vet practices all across the UK. Deer and alpaca farms are also appearing across the country and many vet students being interested in working in zoos or with wildlife. CUVZS provides an opportunity to learn more about the husbandry & treatment of these fascinating creatures, as well as providing advice on how to get into a career in this diverse field. We already have speakers lined up to give talks on a variety of topics and species not covered by lectures on the main vet course and will have a number of weekend practicals. Highlights of the upcoming year will include talks on wildlife work experience and marine mammal medicine! We hope to run practical sessions this year as well! See our term-card to find out more!
