For our final day of Vet Camp, we started the day by checking and feeding the animals 🐓. We then came back inside and painted Kindness Rocks and Pet Rocks 🪨. They turned out so good! While some groups were painting, other groups went outside to work on sheering our sheep 🐑. We learned that sheering is not an easy task!

Next, we joined the Newton County Young Farmers and UGA Extension & 4-H in Newton County at the barn to perform pregnancy checks on our school cows 🐮. We were able to take blood samples 💉 for the pregnancy checks and also got to use the ultrasound machine 🖥️. We determined that one of our cows is bred 🎉.

After lunch we checked on the farm again and then came back inside and divided into stations. Campers were able to pick whatever activity they wanted! Activities included sheering sheep, making more videos, rabbit time, making shrinky d***s, caring for the guinea pigs, and checking on the chickens!

After free choice, we went outside to make ice cream 🍦 ! This quickly turned into karaoke time too 🎤. We ended the day by getting our camp certificates and watching the new videos that were made today!

We want to thank everyone for allowing their students to hang out with us this week! We hope everyone enjoyed Vet Camp as much as we did. Thank you for your continued support of agriculture and FFA in Newton County!

If we can ever do anything to assist you or your child, do not hesitate to let us know. We hope to see you back next year!

Day 3 of Vet. Camp was another full day! We started our morning by checking on the farm animals and feeding everyone 🐓🐑. We then came inside and learned TONS about horses including the different colors and basic anatomy 🐴. We then had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Russell’s registered quarter horse named Rudy. Rudy is 6 years old and trained in team roping🤠. While meeting Rudy, we got to see some of the different tack that is used 🐎. We couldn’t resist taking pictures with Rudy and giving him lots of treats.

We then came back inside and talked about different livestock species. To make things more fun, campers were challenged to draw a livestock animal on Shrinky D**k paper! We can’t wait to see what all of our creations look like tomorrow.

After lunch, we checked the animals again and then prepared for one of our favorite camp activities- Making Dog Biscuits 🐾. We tried a new recipe this year that was pumpkin based 🎃.

After making Dog Biscuits, we had a viewing party of our CPR videos from yesterday (with popcorn, of course 🍿). All the videos turned out SO good! Be sure to check them out on our page!

We’re sad the week is coming to an end but excited for tomorrow’s final day activities🤩!

Campers, don’t forget to wear your Vet. Camp t-shirt tomorrow!

We had another busy day at Vet Camp today! We started our morning by checking and feeding the farm animals🐮. We then came inside and reviewed our animal restraints from yesterday and the proper way to administer pet CPR. Campers were then asked to create a skit to show the steps of pet CPR with their groups🎭. To make it a bit more challenging, each group was given 3 large pieces of different colored paper that they had to incorporate into their skit 🟧🟨🟦. Some groups used the paper as backdrops, some made props… we can’t wait to watch the videos tomorrow🎥!

After our videos were made, we moved into learning about the different types of sutures a vet may use🧵. Campers were given their own “patient” to practice their sutures on. Today’s “patients” were made from pool noodles, tape, and felt. And we used sewing needles and fishing line as our sutures🪡. We’re happy to report that all “patients” look great after our campers administered continuous sutures on their wounds 👍.

After lunch we checked on the farm animals again and had some time with the small animals in the classroom🐹. We then moved into how to properly bandage a wound on a pet. Once again, we used pool noodles as our “patients” and campers place gauze, tape, and vet wrap on all wounds🩹. To make this a bit more fun, we then had a Vet. Wrap Art Contest and challenged each camper to create the best design on their patient🎨. We were SO impressed with the creativity. We ended the day with some more time with the classroom pets and passed out the 2023 Vet. Camp shirts 👕.

Be sure to wear your Camp Shirt on Friday !

We had a GREAT first day of Vet. Camp! Our day started off by making Name and Pet tree cookies 🌳. We will put string on these tomorrow so they can be hung as ornaments or other decorations. We then went to the school farm to check on the animals. We got to see the cows 🐄, goats 🐐, rabbits 🐇 , and sheep 🐑!

We then came inside and did the Strong Bone Challenge 🦴! In this challenge, campers went head to head to try to score 1300 points before their opponent by picking food with different amounts of calcium. 1300mg is the recommended amount of calcium growing teens need. 🥛

We then played a game of Beak Business to show how different bird beaks allow birds to eat different types of food 🐦. We also discussed the importance these difference play in our ecosystem.

Before lunch, we had to have a quick break to check on the rabbits 🐰 and guinea pigs 🐹 too! After lunch, we went back to the farm to feed the farm their lunch and make sure everyone had plenty of water.

We then came inside and learned about the different types of dog and cat restraints 🐶🐱. We learned Lateral Recumbency and Sternal Recumbency today. We then started our lesson on Pet CPR and learned the basics of how to administer CPR to our pets if an emergency was to arise 🫁!

We finished the day discussing the differences in cat and dog skeletons and making chalk drawings on black paper to show the different bones 🦴. While we waited for Pick-Up, we couldn’t resist bringing the rabbits and guinea pigs out for some end of day cuddles!
