Please note this event has now finished.
Promising a fun-filled week of immersive activities, kids can visit our Vet Hospital to experience first-hand what it takes to be a vet at the UK’s largest Zoo.
Vets in Action celebrates the amazing work of the veterinary team at the Zoo, and sees budding vets kitted out in all the necessary gear – including gloves, hairnets, face masks and shoe covers - upon arrival at the Vet Hospital reception.
In a specially-created surgery, the junior vets will be placed at the heart of the action as they watch the Zoo’s team demonstrate how they examine, x-ray and perform treatments – as they conduct a health-check on a chimpanzee soft toy.
If your child is aged between 5-11, join us for one of our drop in sessions which will be running between 11am-12pm and 1.30pm-2.30pm.
Alongside the exciting role-play activities there will be lots of interesting talks covering how Whipsnade’s vet team work hard to ensure the Zoo’s 3,000 animals are fit and healthy.
Vets in Action will take place in the Discovery Zone.
