All things bright and beautiful, All creatures great and small, All things wise and wonderful, The Lord God made them all. – James Harriot
We love kids. We love it when kids ask questions about animals and veterinary medicine. After all, it was a veterinarian in Michigan that inspired the founder of Springboro Veterinary Hospital and Urgent Care to become a veterinarian.
Here are few fun animal links we recommend for kids (and adults too)!

The Cincinnati Zoo Live Home Animal Safari (all ages): Join them for a Home Safari Facebook Live each Tuesday and Thursday at 3 pm EDT, where they will highlight one of their amazing animals and include an activity you can do from home. Don’t have access to social media? No worries! All videos will be posted to this webpage and to their YouTube channel shortly after the Facebook Live ends. Check out more resources here!

Attention Teachers: Teachers, counselors, parents, and advisors play significant roles in directing students – including future veterinarians – toward satisfying careers. AVMA materials are available to help expand students’ understanding of veterinary medicine and nurture their awareness of science and technology. These educational tools are directed by grade level, and most can be downloaded for use in the classroom. Learn more here.
