Veterinary students to offer Community Dog Wash March 7
Students at the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine will hold their biannual Community Dog Wash from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. March 7 on the Virginia Tech campus.
The dog wash will be held at the rear of the veterinary college complex on 245 Duck Pond Drive, on the side closest to Southgate Drive. Signs on Southgate Drive and Duck Pond Drive will guide participants to the event.
Presented by Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) students enrolled in the college, the dog wash is always a popular community event. The cost is $10, and for an additional $5, customers can have their dogs’ nails trimmed and ears cleaned.
Animals will be washed on a first-come, first-served basis, and no appointments are necessary. Dogs will be washed while owners wait. Dogs must be on a leash and be at least 5 months old with current vaccinations.
The dog wash is sponsored by the DVM Class of 2018 and the Student Chapter of the American Veterinary Medical Association, a professional organization for DVM students.
