The Niagara Frontier Veterinary Society has started a series of seminars at Medaille College designed to educate pet owners.
The Mini-Vet School program includes two lectures on each of five Tuesday evenings, beginning Oct. 1.
Topics include making life and death decisions for your pet; how to train a pet using a clicker; information about sheltering medicine; and advances in veterinary medicine for zoo animals.
Lectures are designed as a course in a subject that would be covered in veterinary school.
Graduates will come away with a better understanding of their pet's health, as well as a certificate.
Registration is required, along with a $60 fee for the entire series. Individual lectures are $20. Call 716-880-2306.
