"Overall I found the lectures to be very informative and interesting. I am looking forward to next years mini vet school. This was a wonderful idea to raise money for Global Vets and help pet owners better understand when dealing with our own vets. Thank you to all students and professors for this great opportunity."

"The whole experience of the OVC Discover Vet School was wonderful. The students were professional and kind, and the snacks were appreciated. Thank you for making this event great!"

"Well done! Not sure how the vet students make time with all their studies to put on such a professional clean delicious evening. Thanks for making the time, it was worth it."

"This was my first time attending and I loved it!! Some of the subjects sounded dry reading about them. However, once in class it was always fascinating. In fact, had I been in my mid to late teens, this experience may have very well changed my career choices."

"I was impressed by the passion of all the lecturers and the enthusiasm of the students. My 15 year old daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed the program . Besides all the interesting material there was a lot of information that helps educate us as pet owners."
