I think a love of animals is a very common thing for children to have. Both of my girls currently state that one of their career goals is to become veterinarians. My youngest is still holding out hope that she can physically transform into a tiger, but will care for tigers if that turns out to not be possible. 🙂
Both of my girls play with their stuffed animals for 1-2 hours each and every day, so I thought adding some veterinarian supplies into the mix could add to the fun that they are already having.
Inside the kit, you will find instructions on how to perform an exam on your pet (from nose to tail!). My kids have absolutely loved adding a new element to their plush play time. I highly recommend checking out Little Medical School to learn more about the products and services that are designed to help expose kids to the medical sciences.
Here are a few ideas to help get your child set up for a busy day at the vet clinic:
- Collect extra plastic or cardboard boxes to serve as the carriers for the animals while they wait for their turn to see the doctor.
- Create a special area of the room just for the exams, including a blanket to help keep scared pets calm and a flat surface.
- Some pets will require special foods based on medical needs, so have some food on display to recommend to your patients’ owners!
- Create a pet adoption section where loving owners can view animals that are still searching for their forever homes.
