The Western College of Veterinary Medicine (WCVM) is offering a tour of its equine health facilities and resources on Friday morning, Feb. 14, as part of the 2020 Saskatchewan Equine Expo’s attractions.

The equine health tour will take place at the WCVM’s Veterinary Medical Centre — the veterinary referral facility for all of Western Canada and the only veterinary teaching hospital operating in the region.

The event, which is free for anyone attending the 2020 Saskatchewan Equine Expo, will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. (time include travel time and refreshment break). It will include tours of the WCVM’s Large Animal Clinic, the Ryan/Dubé Equine Performance Centre and the Rae-Dawn Arabians Equine ICU and Foal Centre.

As well, the morning includes a special refreshment break with members of the veterinary college’s horse health team stopping by to say hello.

Registration closes on Thursday, Feb. 6 (click here to register for the tour). Visitors can park their vehicles at Saskatoon’s Prairieland Park and take a shuttle to the U of S campus. The bus will return to the Saskatchewan Equine Expo site by 11:30 a.m.
