Vets in Action

This February half-term kids will be able to truly step into the role of a vet at ZSL London Zoo, during a packed week of interactive family events celebrating the incredible work of the Zoo’s vet team.



We're inviting children to become Zoo vets at our Animal Hospital, an exciting role-playing experience for budding veterinarians.

After arriving for work at the hospital’s reception, junior vets will be prepped with gloves and masks before joining the team in the specially recreated ‘surgery’.

Becoming part of the action, children will help experts examine, x-ray and carry out toy treatments - experiencing first-hand the huge variety of work carried out by the Zoo’s vets, vet nurses and zookeepers on a daily basis.

Our exciting talks and activities will explain everything our amazing vets team do to keep the Zoo’s 18,000 animals in tip-top condition - from microchipping meerkats to checking tiger teeth. 

Vets in Action will take place daily in the Activities Den opposite our B.U.G.S exhibit between 11-19 February 2017.

Vet surgery 10.30am-12.30pm & 1.30-3pm
Vet Q&A 12.30pm (last approx. 20 minutes)

Please be aware that activity times may be subject to change and all times will be advertised on site on the day.
