STILLWATER – The Oklahoma State University College of Veterinary Medicine has planned an open house for Oct. 29

All are invited to take part in free, fun activities as well as learning opportunities for kids from 9 am to 4 pm at the Vet Med complex at 208 N. McFarland St. in Stillwater.

“Open House is a fantastic opportunity for people of all ages to learn more about veterinary medicine,” school dean Dr. Carlos Risco said. “Whether you are interested in a career in the veterinary field or just curious about what we do at the college, there is something for everyone.”

Activities will include a meet-and-greet with OSU’s Bullet, the Spirit Riders and Pistol Pete; an adopt-a-thon with pets from local shelters; teddy bear surgery and other hands-on, science-based activities; face painting; food trucks; and more. Children are encouraged to wear their favorite Halloween costumes to Open House for treats from each booth.
