University of Melbourne Veterinary Hospital (Werribee Campus) is well known in West suburbs of Victoria. Many people from Wyndham area (Werribee, Hoppers Crossing, and others) use, or used at least once, services of the Veterinary Hospital and brought their cats for treatment or emergency.
My beloved Manya The Cat and my other cats were treated there. There are many wonderful doctors, nurses and other personal in the Hospital.
Every year the University of Melbourne Veterinary Hospital opens its doors to public. In 2012 the Open Day will be held on Sunday, 25 March, 10am – 3pm.
We visited it in 2011. It was an awesome experience. I’m very thankful for a possibility to look “behind the scene”: Have you ever seen how a surgery is done on pets? Can you imagine how a “3D scan” can be done to a horse? (3D scan is made by a machine that rotates around your body.) Have you ever seen an x-ray of a snake?
It was an amazing experience. Even though I almost fell unconscious after visiting a surgery room (it reminded me hard medical times we had during our cats relocation to Australia and everything that I experienced in hospitals trying to do everything to save Manya), I found the Open Day very interesting.
