BoP day

 

A very warm welcome back to everyone for another year of vet school!

The CUVZS committee would also like to extend a special welcome to the freshers joining us for the first time!

We’ve got some great speakers lined up for this term, and two fabulous events for you – Birds of Prey Day (with our very own Max Foreman and his birds of prey) and a repeat of last year’s sell-out success Rabbit Surgery Day!

Whether you’re a fresher or a 6th year, a CUVZS veteran or have never been before, we hope you’ll come along and get involved in some exotic animal fun!

N.B. The talk on Nov 7th by Mary Giles is a change from the originally publicised talk by Steph Jayson.

This year’s annual CUVZS Garden Party will be held on WEDNESDAY 19th JUNE, 2pm – 4:30pm, at Sidney Sussex College.

As is traditional, there will be ANIMALS – from cuddly bunnies and a skunk to somewhat less cuddly snakes, tortoises and spiders. Come to the only VET GARDEN PARTY in Cambridge! (Non-vets also welcome!)

More details, including ticket information, will be published soon.

On Saturday 23rd February we were joined by the staff and alpacas from Woodbine Farm Alpacas.  The day started with a short talk to give us an understanding of what it takes to keep alpacas in the UK.  We were then treated to a meeting with the alpacas themselves.  Head over to the Photo Gallery to see just how cute they were!
