A flurry of special events and activities this weekend marks the culmination of Purdue University’s 150 Years of Giant Leaps campaign, and Purdue Veterinary Medicine will be involved in the celebration.  PVM will be on display for Purdue alumni, football fans, and community residents in the “Tent Row” that will be part of the family friendly celebration on the Purdue Mall Saturday morning, October 12, before the kick-off to the Purdue Homecoming football game against Maryland. 

Small Animal Community Practice Wellness Clinician Lori Corriveau (PU DVM ’99) and her students will be on hand at the PVM booth to answer visitors’ pet health questions while armed with plenty of treats for dogs and cats. They also will provide information on the importance of flea and tick preventatives. Booth activities will include a “Wheel of Tick” trivia game, and a “Tick Toss” game, as well as photo ops with dogs, cats, and pocket pets!

The family friendly celebration is just one of many special events during Purdue’s Homecoming Celebration.  Plan to join in the fun and stop by the PVM booth Saturday morning to say hi!
