Our Vision

As the U of A Pre-Vet/Animal Health Club, we strive to:

  • Provide opportunities for students who are interested in veterinary medicine and/or animal health to unite, communicate, and support one another.
  • Expose students to the various disciplines of veterinary medicine and/or animal health and provide various opportunities, help, and encouragement to students wishing to gain experience and knowledge in these areas.
  • Familiarize students with the entry requirements of veterinary medicine programs (specifically the Western College of Veterinary Medicine and the University of Calgary: Faculty of Veterinary Medicine) by organizing information sessions and coordinating university visitations and tours.
  • We host various events throughout the year that allow pre-veterinary medicine and animal health students to network with industry representatives, acquire valuable animal and professional experience, and gain exposure to some of the more unique facets of the animal health industry. If you share a similar passion for animals and would like to join our club, feel free to contact us! We would love to have you with us.


  • Our next general meeting won't be until January.
  • Club cards are available for pickup! You can grab yours at any meeting/presentation as well as in the office during office hours. These cards offer great discounts at various locations.
  • The Edmonton Humane Society is providing a Pet First Aid course on campus on Wednesday Novemeber 25th in Ag/For 1-13. Unfortunately the course is now full, but we're looking into having another next semester.
  • We're hosting a Christmas party on December 7th after classes are out. The theme is tacky/ugly Christmas sweaters. It will include a Chinese gift exchange, a voluntary potluck, and building a gingerbread house!
